Lavarsi Leads Throughout
May 25, 2018
It has taken a little while for the stable to figure out Lavarsi but connections have been patient and he proved worth the wait by recording an easy all the way victory at Cranbourne on Friday night.
Having his fifth start and stepping up to 1400m for the first time, the son of Moshe (pictured) was well rated in the lead by stable apprentice Ethan Brown - travelling so well that he had his rivals off the bit at the turn.
Challenged over the final stages by the short priced favourite Soluminate, Lavarsi just kept kicking and his 3/4 length victory was an impressive one.
"That's his go," Brown reported, "rolling along out in front over seven furlongs with the sting out of the ground."
Confident on the back of Lavarsi's Cranbourne trial victory on Monday, Brown said that "he put them away quite well."
"We thought he was a big chance tonight," Michael Kent said, "and it was a good ride."
"He has always shown a bit, but has been just a little immature and it has taken us a while to figure him out."
Raced by G W Lavender, Peter and Pam Wallace, Dr Dawn Giltinan and Graham Loader, Lavarsi was bred by Peter Wallace out of his two times winning Hillman mare Delightful Minx.
Served last spring by Warrior's Reward having produced a Charge Forward filly in mid-September, Delightful Minx is a daughter of the stakes winner Pleasure Bandit from the family of fellow Listed winners Splendid Melody and I'm The One.
