Cranbourne trainer, Greg Eurell, can certainly find a winner and has had a couple to well and truly fly his flag over recent seasons: Apache Cat and Statue of Liberty flyer, Mic Mac, springing readily to mind.
Now, while Lakedro, might not be in the same category as the aforementioned, the lightly raced 4YO son of Clangalang nevertheless has his share of ability.
Only having his first start last August, Lakedro finished with thirds at Kilmore and Ballarat before peeling off successive victories at Geelong (by six lengths) and Kyneton.
Tipped out for a spell, Lakedro hasn’t had the greatest of luck since resuming in February, featuring in the stewards reports with his eighth at Sandown and fourth at Moonee Valley.
But nothing compared to the ‘chapter’ they devoted to the horse following his second at Moonee Valley on 8 March when beaten less than a half length.
Lakedro then appeared in the Albury Cup (finishing sixth to Growl) before finally breaking through for a well deserved victory at Seymour on Tuesday (20 April), scoring comfortably over the 1600m.
Bred by Dennis Rose, Lakedro is out of the Nassipour mare, Enchanting Style and is from the family of European Group winner and successful Aussie sire, Lord Seymour, Caerwent, Marling, Marwell etc.
Meanwhile, Clangalang goes from strength to strength in 2010 with his Group winner Geegees Blackflash heading a phalanx of winners in recent weeks, including Reverberates, plus city winners Hi Belle, Prince Obama, Bavarian Belle and Hemony to name but a few.
