God’s Own continued building some late season momentum when he produced his second winner in eight days after Onamissionfromgod made a winning return at Wangaratta on Sunday (11 April).
For a stallion that didn’t commence his race career until a month before turning three it was fair to expect his progeny may take a little time to find their feet, and indeed it wasn’t until February that God’s Own broke his duck when Heavens Own scored at the Sunshine Coast.
That was followed last Saturday when Captain Oates scored in New Zealand and was quickly backed up today with Onamissionfromgod (below, pictured left as a yearling).
Onamissionfromgod was resuming after two starts in the spring which saw an unplaced effort on debut in the Maribyrnong Plate-G3 at Flemington before a short head second at Ballarat prior to spelling.
A strong type from Carbonated, a half-sister to Intelligent Star, Blaze The Turf and Aerate’s Pick (the dam of Ortensia), he was offered by Eliza Park at the Inglis Premier Yearling Sale in Melbourne being knocked down to David O’Callaghan Bloodstock for $34,000 and sent to the stables of Alicia Macpherson.
Since January 1, God’s Own has had 11 runners in Australia with two winners and four placegetters, along with Captain Oates in New Zealand.
God’s Own stands at Eliza Park in conjunction with Yallambee Stud.
