Per Incanto's 20th Stakes Winner Races Into Everest Contention

Saturday, 15 May 2021 23:21

Slot holders in October’s TAB Everest will have plenty of thinking to do following the debut stakes success of Sydney’s most talked about four-year-old sprinter Lost and Running (Per Incanto-Dreamlife by Danroad) in the Listed 1300m Luskin Star Stakes at Rosehill on Saturday.

Coming off a four-length win on the last day of the Sydney Autumn Carnival, the John O’Shea trained gelding justified his $1.35 quote, drawing away under hands and heals to record a two and a quarter length victory. The Per Incanto four-year-old’s record now stands at six wins and a second in seven starts.

Earlier in the week O’Shea confirmed Lost And Running’s connections were in discussion with slot holders.

It might be considered an ‘off-season’ Listed race but three of the past four winners of the Luskin Star Stakes have found themselves in the Everest and performed well.

The 2017 winner Clearly Innocent ran seventh, Osborne Bulls (2018) ran third, as did Trekking (2019), in the Everest.

Per Incanto’s 20th stakes winner came a day after the stallion had his only colt in the National Weanling Sale sell for $110,000. Friday’s result continued an incredible 2021 sale series for the son of Street Cry, cementing his position as the most profitable domestic stallion on sale return to service fee since his first crop debuted in 2014.
