Flying Agent a budding star

An incredible 17-length win at Warnambool by former White Robe Lodge galloper Flying Agent continued Raise The Flag’s phenomenal form in Australia over the weekend. In just his second start over bigger fences, the 7yr-old looked like a future steeplechasing star when running to his big win for trainer Amy McDonald and rider Lee Horner. Despite her horse’s exciting win, McDonald is keeping her feet planted firmly on the ground when assessing Flying Agent’s future. The Ballarat trainer wants to see the Raise The Flag gelding, from Personal Escort mare, Nancy Wake, progress through the steeplechasing grades before he goes on to bigger things.

Ghibellines still unbeaten in Australia

Smokin’ Romans’ sensational Victorian debut continued White Robe Lodge sire Ghibellines’ unbeaten run in Australia. Smokin’ Romans (Ghibellines – Inferno – Yamanin Vital) made his rivals look like they were running on quicksand, rather than the Ballarat synthetic track, when bolting in over 1500m by almost four lengths in his debut for trainers Ciaron Maher and David Eustace. The 3yr-old continued his sire’s perfect record in Australia with Ghibellines having produced three winners from three starters across the Tasman. From White Robe Lodge’s 10-race winning Yamanin Vital mare, Inferno, Smokin’ Romans was part of the stud’s draft at the 2018 National Yearling Sales at Karaka.

Our Teddy Boy, who won in just his second start for the Anderton stable at Wingatui in February, finished well down the outer to take third.
