Jurasound swept the boards with a winning hat-trick in the $100,000 Mornington Guineas (1500m) on Saturday.
The Lindsay Park filly has earned over $256,00 including Super VOBIS and VOBIS Gold windfalls totalling $121,000. She banked $50,000 worth of incentives with a three length victory over Malaguerra (Magnus) during the stand-alone fixture on the peninsula.
The daughter of Darley Victoria stallion Von Costa de Hero is trained by David Hayes and Tom Dabernig and the latter said Jurasound is the perfect advertisement for VOBIS. “It’s a great incentive and she’s part-owned by David – he’s absolutely rubbing his hands together.
“She’s in a purple patch of form and was very authoritative today. We trained Von Costa De Hero and his progeny really come into their own as three-year-olds.”
Jurasound (3f Von Costa de Hero – Oceano by Portland Pirate) will now be set for the $250,000 VOBIS Gold Mile (1600m) at Caulfield on April 18. She graduated from the 2013 Inglis Easter Sale for $100,000 and is from a Listed winner of the 2003 Bow Mistress Stakes.
Von Costa De Hero (Encosta de Lago) was a $1.20 million Easter yearling and won the G2 Victorian Sires’ Produce Stakes on top of Group 1 placings in the Golden Slipper, Caulfield Guineas and Australian Guineas.
He’s just outside the Top 10 on the second-season sires’ table with 12 individual winners from 39 starters and $594,770 in prizemoney. He stood for a $5,500 (inc gst) fee at Northwood Park in Seymour last year.
