The hot run of form of WS’s racing team continued in Australia yesterday with the success of So Splendid. The Chris Waller-trained four-year-old won for the second time in her fledgling career with a first-up victory for the season over 1400m at Warwick Farm.
The daughter of Savabeel, who beat another home-bred in O’Reilly Cyrus, is raced by Mark and Garry Chittick. She is out of the O’Reilly mare Splendid, a half-sister to the Gr.1 Australasian Oaks winner Marju Snip and the Hong Kong stakes winner Unique Jewellery.
The runner-up O’Reilly Cyrus, prepared by Joe Pride, was bought out of WS’s 2015 Premier Sale draft for $100,000. By O’Reilly, he is a half-brother to the Listed Waikato Sprint winner Savour The Moment.
