SUSPECT STANDISH BOUND
Dec 07, 2020
Sirius Suspect will head to the Group 3 Standish Handicap in winning form after a dominant effort at the Pakenham Cup meeting on Saturday.
Second-up over 1200m, the ATB bred 6YO son of Wanted was far too good for his opposition in the $100,000 Hanson Handicap.
With Jamie Kah replacing regular rider Brad Rawiller who has relocated to Perth, the consistent galloper travelled strongly outside race leader and eventual runner-up Tavisan.
On straightening for home it was apparent he had plenty in reserve and kicked clear before holding off all challengers by just over one length.
Trainer Saab Hasan has always had the Flemington New Years stakes race as his number one target, and after two super runs this preparation has the horse in a good space.
A very tough & honest racehorse since he making his debut in January 2018, the weekend's victory was his seventh from 24 starts for just over $387,000 in prizemoney.
Congratulations to his breeders and owners ATB Pty Ltd. PA Catterall, Ms MT Farrell, Ms MG Keys, Ms WE Prentis, JB Rist, GB Ward, CD Shipp, HW Prescott, R Wilkinson, AGT, NA Mai, GP Bowlers, The Unwanted Mob, SM King, Ms M Uttley, M Uttley.
