Ever since it was announced that Onemorenomore would be shifting to Victoria to stand at Ridgeview Park Stud, the young Red Ransom stallion has been on fire – in the recent weeks represented by six winners including a double on Sunday 12th June.
At Sha Tin, Hong Kong the sire’s son Lucky Girl (yes a gelding with this name!) recorded a particularly gutsy win over 1800m, working hard early to get to the lead from a wide gate.
Challenged a couple of times down the long straight, Lucky Girl just kept fighting with the caller declaring “he’s got a massive stride this horse and it will get him home!”
It was the second Hong Kong success for the Gerry Harvey bred four-year-old who has shown himself to be a horse of considerable talent, finishing a close up sixth in the Hong Kong Derby won by Werther.
And he defeated some smart types on Sunday, behind him being the Australian Group winners Savvy Nature and Philippi and the New Zealand Listed winner Midnite Promise.
Meanwhile at Kalgoorlie the lightly raced I’m Gunna was an easy maiden winner at only her third start having finished in the placings at her first two.
And on Tuesday One More Tequila recorded her fourth success when claiming a 1350m event at Cessnock.
Also new to Ridgeview this spring is Al Samer whose progeny have been in good form too – on Hawkesbury on Sunday 12th June his in-form son Another Larga winning his second race from his last three starts, looking good leading throughout.
His full brother Choice Larga won at Wagga Wagga last week whilst Issawi has been in flying form in Tasmania winning four of his last five starts for the Scott Brunton stable.
Al Samer looks to have a nice filly in the making in the shape of two-year-old Peeking Duck who was impressive easily winning a Cranbourne maiden in mid-May – following on from a solid showing in Gr.3 company at debut last spring.
“Both Onemorenomore and Al Samer are proven stallions consistently providing winners,” said Ridgeview Park’s Phil Sloane.
“We have been most encouraged by the response to both stallions and look forward to a busy spring.”
