Clangalang continues to ‘grow’ his resume with a convincing victory to the Gerald Ryan trained Trebbiano over 2000m at Kembla on 14 November.
It was score No. 21 for the Derby-Epsom winning son of Clang and, even more remarkably, he boasts an 80% money earners to runners strike rate.
Bred by Miss LC Smith, Trebbiano is out of the Dieu D’or mare, Vinifera Lady who has also produced city winner of 5 in Straws Lane.
This is also the family of speedy Quiet Little Drink and the NZ Derby-G1 winner Coniston Bluebird.
Although this was Trebbiano’s eighth outing, he had twice previously been placed in town.
Well named, Trebbiano is arguably the most popular grape variety for white wine and is from the species Vitis vinifera.
