Greyworm Flies At Debut

Jun 12, 2018

It was a most encouraging debut by Greyworm at Mornington on Monday, the promising grey jumping straight to the front - always travelling well for Ethan Brown.

Challenged briefly turning, the three-year-old gave a kick into the straight, shaking off his main rival over the final 200m, very strong to the line.

The son of Redoute's Choice's Gr.1 winner Master Of Design (pictured) had jumped out well for us having won three trials in Sydney for Kris Lees - on the back of those sold to Asia but staying in Australia due to a mix-up.

Which is good news for us as he has shown ability since first making his way to the stable, Mick Kent describing him as "a really nice horse who is only going to improve."

"He really lengthened stride at the end, you don't see many horses do that, I like the way he stretches. And he's got good stamina, I am sure he will run a mile."

"He is still fairly backward but he has shown me plenty and he is at least Saturday grade so that is probably where we will head next."

Jockey Ethan Brown was also impressed - "he goes alright this horse. I have been riding him in fast work during the last couple of weeks and he has given me a nice feel."

"The track helped him a bit today but he put them away quite comfortably."

"We rolled along early and even though he was being taken on by another horse he came back underneath me nicely which is a good sign - to do that and kick away the way he did, he was pretty convincing."

Named after a Game Of Thrones character, Greyworm is out of the city winning Dash For Cash mare Miracle Magic whose third dam is the Blue Diamond Stakes winner Midnight Fever.
