Exciting Lonhro colt, Dissolved, took another important step toward a future at stud by capturing the $100,000 GPG Inglis Trophy Race (1400m) at Sale on Sunday (25 October).
Eliza Park purchased a share in Dissolved after the colt had caught the eye of champion trainer John Hawkes at last year’s Australian Easter Yearling Sale. Hawkes eventually went to $300,000 to secure the first foal of Grand Lodge mare Yarralumla.
As pointed out by Breednet, Dissolved “is from one of Australian racing's most outstanding families, with Yarralumla being a half-sister to seven times Group One winner and $5million earner Grand Armee, with other Group One winning relations including Dealer Principal, Drum and Anamato”.
Lonhro, of course, needs little explanation: winner of 11 Group Ones during his illustrious career, his progeny include Group One winner Denman, along with O’Lonhro, Demerit, Minnesota Shark and co.
Dissolved certainly got off on the right hoof with a win over 1206m at Sale on debut at the end of September, before an unlucky second over 1300m at Cranbourne.
However, it was back to the winners’ circle yesterday and according to the training triumvirate of Michael, Wayne and John Hawkes, Dissolved will be set for “bigger targets next autumn”.
Inglis Director, Peter Heagney, who was on hand to present the trophy, added: “Dissolved certainly looks a horse capable of measuring up to some nice races next year.”
