Family Takes Another Winning Trick

An established WS family added to its record in Victoria yesterday when Obligation was successful at the Ballarat meeting.

The Pins four-year-old has now progressed to two wins and three placings from his seven appearances.

Trained at Caulfield by Luke Oliver, the gelding is a son of the unraced O’Reilly mare Alexandra Star, whose two othger foals to race have also been multiple Australian winners. She is a half-sister to the dual Gr.2 Edward Manifold and Queen of the Turf Stakes winner Ugachaka (Danasinga) and the Gr.3 Manawatu Challenge Stakes winner, Country Rose (Centaine).
Obligation was originally purchased by trans-Tasman trainer Graeme Rogerson out of WS’s 2010 Premier Sale draft for $100,000. Leading Melbourne horseman Peter Moody bought the Pins colt out of Ugachaka offered by WS at Karaka in 2013 for $80,000.
