Pariah colt wins at The Valley

Pariah’s top-priced first-crop yearling is now his first city winner after an easy second-up win over 1200 metres at The Valley on Friday evening. 

Latvian was a $375,000 buy from Newgate Farm at Inglis Easter for James Harron, who also purchased Pariah for $700,000 from Arrowfield’s 2016 Inglis Easter draft.

Best of all, Latvian has potential for further development as co-trainer Sam Freedman indicated after the win. “We might actually give him a short break and look to head up to Queensland as he gives us the impression he might appreciate getting over a little bit further.”

Bred & raced by one of Pariah’s racing partners Love Racing, Latvian is a three-quarter brother to juvenile stakeswinner Nomothaj, from Real Stolle (by Elusive Quality), winner of the Maribyronong Plate G3 at two.

Pariah has now had two winners, the filly Nalabelle & Latvian, plus Group-placed colt Swiss Exile and two other placegetters Astelena (at The Valley) and Belriah from his first 11 runners. 

The average price paid so far in 2022 for Pariah’s second-crop yearlings is  $107,000 with a top price of $280,000 achieved for the Hell It’s Hot filly at Inglis Classic. 

The Group-winning son of Redoute’s Choice has two lots in Arrowfield’s Inglis Easter draft: a three-quarter brother to Group winner Anders, and a three-quarter sister to Group 1 winner Stronger.
