Nitrous turns on turbo at Canberra

Date: 15/12/2019

Deep Field colt Nitrous lived up to the promise of his first trial when running out a powerful winner over 1000m at Canberra this Sunday.

Jumping with great zest, Nitrous quickly found the lead and led his field easily. Once in the straight the race was quickly put beyond doubt as Nitrous bounded several lengths clear of his rivals, in a slick final 600m of 33.06s.

Nitrous is the first foal of Group 2 performed mare Flamboyant Lass and he was a $450,000 purchase for the JHB Colt Group at the 2019 Magic Millions Gold Coast Yearling sale. His dam is also a full-sister to JHB raced Group 2-winning colt Attention.

Thanks to trainers Peter and Paul Snowden and congratulations to winning owners, Belinda Bateman, Love Racing, Phil & Glenda Mehrten, Fergus & Delia Doyle, Steve & Louise Gillard, Gary Diamond, Danny & Pauline Saab and John & Fran Ingham.
