Setting a track record on debut after sitting four wide established Lost And Running (Per Incanto-Dreamlife by Danroad) as a horse of rare talent, however his first real litmus test came at Randwick on Saturday on the final day of the Autumn Carnival and he passed with flying colours with many in the racing media labelling the Per Incanto 4YO’s eased down four length win in 1.08.75 as the performance of the day.

Lost And Running, who is expected to put his imposing record of five wins and a second on the line in next months Listed Luskin Star Stakes at Rosehill, was bred by Lib Petagna, who remains in the ownership with Karl Holt, Frank and Christine Cook and Isabel O’Shea.

Another talented son of Per Incanto in Australia, Garoppolo (Per Incanto-Savamour by Savabeel) may have lost his unbeaten record in the Listed 1100m Mick Dittman Plate at Doomben on Saturday but the exciting 3YO will have come away with his reputation enhanced after getting shut out when mounting what looked a winning run at the 200m, going to the line hard held in 5th. Garoppolo was bred by LA and bought by Justin Wong’s Red Hare Bloodstock from our 2019 Karaka Book 1 draft for $70,000.

The leading sire in Hong Kong and Singapore by winners, Per Incanto will stand the 2021 season at $25,000 plus GST.

Excellence, under-pinned by a good public profile that is down to earth and friendly
