Stroesky Overcomes Trouble

Jan 18, 2014

Small fields can sometimes prove tricky affairs and so it proved for Stroemsky at Sale on Thursda, the consistent raced six-year-old overcoming trouble in running to find the line in determined style.

Settling second last in a five horse field, the Elvstroem gelding needed luck coming to the turn and in the straight, held up for runs behind the leaders. But when a gap finally came Stroemsky was strong taking it - forging through to record an impressive victory.

In doing so Stroesmky recorded his second victory at his third run this campaign - a good effort from a horse who has endured his fair share of setbacks including tendon injury and wind problems requiring surgery.
Congratulations to Stroemsky's happy owners including breeder Kerry Selleck who races him with Lee Selleck, Roslyn Andrews, George Zagon, Christopher Finnegan, Michael Sandor, Michael Farrell and David Chisholm.

One of seven winners produced by the city placed three times winning Umatilla mare Umansky, Stroemsky is a full brother to our terrific mare Danestroem who has been in great form this summer.
