Lanciato Makes It Seven Wins For Per Incanto this Week
Fittingly in a week that saw his sire ascend to the position of New Zealand’s leading progenitor of three-year-old individual winners, Lanciato (Per Incanto-Surreptitious by O’Reilly) comprehensively defeated a field of promising three-year-olds at set weights over 1600m at Te Rapa on Saturday.
With subsequent Group 2 winner and multiple Group 1 placed Stolen Dance winning the same race last year, and having the likes of Derby place-getter Raghu amongst the beaten brigade in this year’s contest, Lanciato’s owners the Homebush Partnership justifiably have plenty to look forward to.
Lanciato, who was bred by JML Bloodstock and LA, was one of seven individual winners for Per Incanto across Australasia during the last week.
Three More Wins for Per Incanto and Magnum Runs 3rd in Group 2
Magnum (Per Incanto-Sound Lover by Sound Reason) lost few admirers with a brave third in the 1400m Group 2 Singapore Classic at Kranjii on Sunday.
Despite been posted five wide for a greater part of the race, the LA bred colt fought all the way to the line in the second leg of Singapore Three-Year-Old Challenge and looks well suited to the 1600m Group 1 Singapore Guineas in three weeks.
Magnum’s performance capped another strong weekend for Per Incanto, led domestically by the debutant Don Carlo (Per Incanto-Turf Fire by O’Reilly) who dented a number of reputations with a brave win in the two-year-old event at Riccarton on Saturday. Don Carlo is expected to back-up in the Listed Champagne Stakes on the same course in a fortnight.
Des and Kay Fleming’s Peranto (Per Incanto-Torrun by Chief Bearheart) cleared out to take the maiden 1400m at Awapuni on Monday by five and a half lengths, while at Trentham on Saturday, local Opaki trainer Stacey Dougan produced Freddy Lad (Per Incanto-Tap ‘N’Gap by Spectatorial) to win over 1300m.
