Don Byrne’s Eldon Park Stud has bred a number of winners over the years and added to the trophy cabinet with another win to homebred Statue of Liberty 4YO, Statue of Glory, at Penola on Sunday (4 April).
Notching up his third win, Statue of Glory tends to mix his form a bit for trainer/owner Don Irlam, but on his day he can certainly rattle a cage.
All up, Statue of Glory has raced 20 times, finishing in the top three on 10 of those occasions, including a second at Morphettville.
Statue of Glory – from the Rory’s Jester mare, Rory’s Glory – is a half brother to three other winners including Testa Rossa’s first stakes winner Rossa Glory (VRC Maribyrnong Trial-LR). He is also closely related to SA stakes winner and VRC Derby placegetter Raising Kentucky.
