Hussonet’s son 2nd in Caulfield Guineas


Hussonet’s son 2nd in Caulfield Guineas

He paid $7.60 for running second – which means punters took a bleak view Run For Levi‘s prospects in today’s $1 million MRC Caulfield Guineas 1600m G1.

It was not a view shared by jockey Craig Newitt who encouraged the son of Hussonet to take advantage of his No. 2 gate and set the pace. Run For Levi maintained his momentum so staunchly round the bend and into the straight that only Anacheeva could get past him, by a long neck with three-quarters of a length back to Masquerader in third place.

Run For Levi’s outstanding effort for his owner Patinack Farm Racing took his prizemoney to $294,850 from two wins and four placings in a 12-start career.

Bred by Wall Street Thoroughbreds Pty Ltd, Run for Levi was sold to Patinack Farm as a foal at foot with his dam Madam Bligh for $340,000 at the 2008 Magic Millions National Broodmare Sale. He broke his maiden at his fourth start last season on 7 May, and three weeks later won the BRC Doomben Slipper 1350m LR.

Sent to Melbourne after failing in the STC Golden Rose G1, he has started three times for three placings in the past month, including today’s effort and a similarly brave 2nd to Hollowlea in the MVRC Bill Stutt S. 1600m G2 on 24 September.

His sire Hussonet is Australia’s leading active sire of Group One winners, with 27 on the board…so far.
