God’s Own continues to climb the national charts by winners, adding another two to the tally with Johanna’s Own lobbing at Mornington on Friday before Sons of God absolutely romped home for a four length score at Eagle Farm yesterday.
Johanna’s Own was bred and is raced by Gaspare Sirianni, who also shares the bills with a number of others including Roy Higgins & Wylie Dalzeil Racing of Moshe fame.
(Another of the part-owners is ‘Eight Pelicans Racing’ … and no, we don’t want to ask!).
Trained by Tony Noonan, Johanna’s Own is out of the Umatilla mare, Johanna, and it was the second win for the lightly raced 4YO.
The somewhat fittingly named, Sons of God was absolutely on song over 1400m at Eagle Farm, leading throughout before pulling away to score by four lengths as favourite.
Racing out of Robert Heathote’s stable, Sons of God has been the model of consistency this time in but has just fallen short – just look at his score sheet since resuming in September … 2nd at Doomben, 3rd at Doomben, 2nd at Eagle Farm, 2nd again at the Farm, 3rd at the Farm and, two weeks ago, 2nd at the Farm. He has not been out of the money once in his last nine starts!
Sons of God is from the stakes placed Celtic Swing mare, Lucky Punch, a half sister to stakes winners Party Boy and Rory’s Classic.
