Statue of Liberty added some black type to the trophy cabinet via the promising 2YO, Octane Flyer … a gutsy second in Saturday’s Group Three Skyline Stakes at Warwick Farm.
Having only his third outing after winning on debut at Doomben in October and following up with a second in Brisbane a fortnight later, Octane Flyer shook off the cobwebs with a solid run home for trainer Kelly Schweida.
Octane Flyer (below) hails from the first crop of Statue of Libertys since his three year break from the Australian scene.
Statue of Liberty is also the sire of Hay List who also made a welcome return to racing at the Farm, finishing fourth in the Group Two Challenge and giving rise to his legion of fans that he’ll soon be back as good as before.
Statue of Liberty certainly hasn’t lost any lustre with buyers with his 2013 yearlings selling up to $200,000 on the Gold Coast and up to $120,000 in Melbourne.
