Delzao 3YO, Mister Ceriani, had far too much in the tank for rivals in the Terang Genetics Australia Highweight over 1850m yesterday (15 February).
Indicating a win wasn’t too far off with a gutsy third over the same course and distance at his previous start on 25 January, Mister Ceriani raced clear this time around to score by one and a half lengths.
Interestingly, the race name is of some note in this case with Mister Cerani being a grandson of Encosta de Lago and is out of Flying Spur mare Solar Song.
Encosta de Lago is out of Shoal Creek who is, in turn, a daughter of Mr Prospector mare Rolls, while Flying Spur is out of Rolls.
Mister Ceriani’s second dam, Sumatra, is a dual Group One winner in Argentina.
Meanwhile, Solar Song has an Undoubtedly 2YO, a Written Tycoon yearling (which was passed in at the 2010 Sydney Classic) and a Written Tycoon weanling.
