Deserved Success for Stakes Performing Per Incanto Sprinter

Sunday, 21 February 2021 06:06

Justacanta (Per Incanto-Just Casual by Casual Lies) recorded a well- deserved win in the feature sprint at Ellerslie on Saturday.

Runner-up in the Group 3 Concorde Handicap last start, the Shaun and Emma Clothworthy trained 7YO has been extremely competitive in the feature summer Northern sprints with only Levante producing a faster last 600m sectional in the Group 1 Railway.

Per Incanto’s run of form over the ditch continued on Saturday with Peranto wining In Victoria and Philipsburg running third at Rosehill.

Domestic racing on Sunday at Hastings saw a win to the LA and Guy and Bridget Lowry bred Dark Alley (Per Incanto-Alleyway by Towkay). The promising 4YO has now won two of his three raceday starts.

First and foremost, stockman and people whose interest in the animal translates into an innate ability to read how a horse will develop. I’ll see a foal at LA and Sam or Buzz will tell me how they expect it to develop. I’ll see it during my Karaka inspections 12 months later, and you could blow me over with a feather
