Mare Continues Fine Job
10 July 2011
Centelise has a 100 percent record at stud and her promising son Dominant Future added to the honours board in Melbourne on Saturday. The three-year-old WS-bred and sold son of Pins fought tooth and nail all the way up the long Flemington straight to claim the $A100,000 Silver Bowl Series Final.
A winning mare by the champion broodmare sire Centaine, Centelise is also the dam of the highly-regarded Shantaine, an older sister to Dominant Future who has compiled the impressive record of five wins and six placings from 13 starts for Pukekohe trainer Richard Collett. Dragon World (O’Reilly) is another sibling and he has been a multiple winner in Singapore.
Dominant Future was a $70,000 purchase by Mick Price out of WS’s Premier Sale team to Karaka in 2009. The winner of two of his six starts for the leading Caulfield-based trainer, he hails from the outstanding family of multiple Gr 1 winners and sires Lonhro and Grosvenor.
“We have had a reasonably high opinion of the horse,” Price’s assistant trainer Mick Nolan said. “At his first start Chasse beat him who went on the Sandown Guineas.” The stable expects Dominant Future to continue to progress over more ground. “He hit the line good and I was very happy with the way he toughed it out,” Nolan said. “He is a 10-furlong sort of horse so the run was good. We will just press on and see what happens.”
