Stakes Success for Pyrrolic

Jul 12, 2014

Wind operations, said Michael Kent “either work or they don’t,” and he was very pleased that the one performed on the talented Pyrrolic was a successful one – the exciting galloper so impressive winning the Listed Creswick Series Final at Flemington on Saturday.

Creating a fine impression when saluting by three lengths at his Sandown debut in May last year, Pyrrolic was unplaced in two summer runs, a tie-back operation ensuing.

“Alastair MacLean did the operation and he is the best at doing them,” Kent said.

Getting back and showing heart to weave his way through the Creswick field – going to the inside of the other runners at the 200m, Pyrrolic drew clear late to win by a strong half length with plenty in hand.

“He is a really nice horse and he has come back well,” Kent enthused.

“I will probably try to win another race with him and then have a look at the spring,” Kent said, noting that races like the Toorak Handicap may prove suitable aims.

A home-bred for Dr Greg Anderson, Pyrrolic is a son of former Darley shuttler Teofilo and the Geelong maiden winner Guillem, a half-sister to his stakes placed stable mate McNulty.

A granddaughter of the Group Three winner Lost Art, Guillem paid a return visit to Teofilo last spring having foaled a Mutawaajid colt in early September.
