Wins to Red Ransom, More Than Ready and a quinella for Vinery Stud stallions in the Listed Dalrello Stakes (1200m) has headlined a winning treble for the Hunter Valley operation at Doomben.

The Jason McLachlan-trained Absalon (Mossman – Danish Seaway, by Danehill) charged home late to upset the favourite Masihara (More Than Ready – Darsini, by Danehill) by a short half head. Absalon maintained his unbeaten record with his success in the $100,000 feature.

“He is a really good horse and I think he’s got a big future. He should really relish longer distances.” McLachlan said.

Absalon’s win was the third on the day for Vinery Stud sires at Doomben. The Reveller (Red Ransom – Leveller, by Redoute’s Choice) took out the Coca-Cola Maiden Plate (1350m) before Ready Steady Vetti (More Than Ready – C’yaontheotherside, by Hermitage) claimed the Handicap (1110m).


Vinery’s ultra consistent Top Ten stallion Testa Rossa added to the Doomben treble when his son Testate (Testa Rossa – Laura’s World, by King’s Theatre) won the Eckert Earthmoving Handicap (1206m) at Murray Bridge.
