Stronger lives up to his name at Randwick
Not A Single Doubt colt Stronger gained his second 2YO win, and his first at Metropolitan level when a brave winner at Randwick on Wednesday. From a tricky outside barrier he had no luck getting into a position early, and was forced to race four wide throughout. Under apprentice Billy Owen, Stronger showed a good kick in the straight, going head to head with Dresden Green, who wandered off a true line in the final stages.
Stronger is the second foal of the winning Starcraft mare Star Pupil, whose first foal Tiger Silk is a winner and black type placed in New Zealand. This is a prolific 2YO family, numbering Golden Slipper winner Polar Success amongst a plethora of stakes winners.
Thanks as always to trainers Peter and Paul Snowden, and congratulations to owners Belinda Bateman, Donna & Rob Love, Phil & Glenda Mehrten, Fergus & Delia Doyle, Steve & Louise Gillard, John & Fran Ingham, Gary Diamond and Danny & Pauline Saab.
