Clearly one of Australia’s most underrated stallions, CLANGALANG had one of his best days at the track on Melbourne Cup day with three winners from four starters: Mavross, Bellman True and Duplify.
The Clangalangs are never far off the money and recent winners include Cool As Clang, Weholdtheace, Full Peal, Lexcen and Zoomalot leading up to Tuesday’s three peat.
The David Jolly trained Mavross has been knocking on the door since day one and scored a deserved win over 1200m at Morphettville, coming from the tail of the field. Leading up to the city win, Mavross had had six starts for five thirds and a second!
Bred at Eliza Park and sold as a weanling, Mavross is out of the Roi Danzig mare Heroic Dance, a half sister to Group Two runnerup Shimmering.
Bellman True is another who has had his hoof on the till and raced away to score by three panels over 1600m at Moe.
Only lightly raced, Bellman True was bred (and is owned) by Les Armer and trained by Paul Kramer.
Out of the Jugah mare Jugah Princess, Bellman True hails from the family of SAJC Oaks-G1 winner Runaway Bridge and Epsom Handicap runnerup Kingsgate.
Meanwhile, Duplify rounded out the trio with an emphatic victory over 1100m at Wodonga – his first run in 14 weeks – and now has two wins and 14 placings to his credit.
Bred by Charlie Grills in NSW, Duplify is out of the Marscay mare Flanelle, a half sister to dual Melbourne Group winner Rockets Galore.
