He’s not as famous as his big brother yet, but punters who saw his debut win at Gosford on Thursday will want to stick with him.
He is 3YO gelding, Sound of the Ocean, a half-brother by Encosta de Lago’s sire son Delzao to dual Group One winner Hay List (left).
Another homebred for the Davenport family prepared by John McNair, Sound of the Ocean has been given plenty of time to mature and looked a promising horse in the making after opening his winning account in the 1100m maiden under Diego Lima.
Despite racing greenly all the way up the straight, Sound of the Ocean found the line strongly in the last 100m to snatch a narrow short head win.
The gelding is the second winner for the Is it True (USA) mare Sing Hallelujah, who has a weanling full brother to Hay List in the pipeline and is due to foal to his sire Statue of Liberty again this spring.
