Lord Of The Sky gave a career-best performance to win G3 Sir John Monash Stakes (1100m) by more than four lengths at Caulfield on Saturday.

The Robbie Laing trained speed-machine led them up and then lengthened in the straight to post his first black-type victory.  He is the fifth stakes winner for Rangal Park Stud stallion Danerich.

Lord Of The Sky (3c Danerich — Princess Abassi by Abassi) had opened his account in a juvenile event on Monash Stakes day last year.  He will head to the G3 Bletchingly Stakes (1200m) on July 26 before connections decide on a possible start in the G1 Memsie Stakes (1400m) on August 31.

“He was dominant today,” Laing said.  “He just left them for dead.”  The Cranbourne conditioner turned down a half-million dollar offer from Hong Kong last year and a Group 1 win will make the colt an attractive proposition as a stallion.

Lord Of The Sky is the only foal to race from Flemington winner Princess Abassi who retired to stud in 2005.  “It’s always a big ask when you go up to the better grades but he gave me a really good kick,” jockey Dwayne Dunn declared.  “He stamped his authority on them today and I think he’s the real deal.”

Danerich (Danehill) is based at Rangal Park in Euroa and will stand for an $8,800 (inc gst) service fee this year.
