New King breaks through at Rosehill
New King was a JHB purchase at the Tattersalls July Horses in Training Sale.
His owners have been very patient as he has settled into Australia, and were rewarded with an impressive Saturday win over 1500m at Randwick on August 8th. Settling on the fence towards the rear, jockey James McDonald saved ground throughout the run. He came with his challenge in the final 100m and gradually overhauled Frosty Rocks and was going away on the line.
This was a fantastic training performance from Matt Dale, and New King looks an exciting import prospect, particularly as he steps up in distance.
Congratulations to New King’s owners, Rob Love, Fergus Doyle, Belinda Bateman, Gary Diamond, Danny Saab and original owners in Europe, Qatar Bloodstock, who have retained a share in this exciting prospect.
