Two In A Row for Varboss

Feb 07, 2015

Despite a rise in weight talented up and comer Varboss was able to take his winning form from Sandown in mid-January to Moonee Valley on Friday night, the handsome chestnut looking good winning his second city race in a row.

And his second win was all the more impressive than his first, the four-year-old after enjoying a good run third along the rails hooking into the clear straightening - hitting the lead at the 150m and drawing clear to salute by a soft 1 1/4 lengths.

"He is a progressive horse," Michael Kent said, hopeful that the son of Street Sense will eventually measure up in better company over more ground.

"We should get him to Saturday grade this time in and then put him out - he is still quite immature and his dam (Varevees) was one of the better stayers in France when Rick Jamieson bought her so he should be even better over a bit of distance."

With Varevees having contested a Melbourne Cup - and winning at Listed level over 3100m in France - there is certainly stamina in Varboss' bloodlines.

Raced by David Gillies, Varboss has always been well regarded by Kent who has been "impressed by his length of stride."
