Progressive Sir Albert impresses again

Savabeel four-year-old Sir Albert isn’t wasting any time making his way through the grades.

The Terri Rae representative won for the third time in nine appearances when he put away his Rating 75 rivals over 1800 metres on his home track at Riccarton on Saturday afternoon.

An unlucky third at his previous appearance last month, Sir Albert settled in behind the pace away from the fence before working into the clear at the top of the straight.

He hit the front 300 metres from home under Lisa Allpress and rounded off strongly to earn major honours.

Sir Albert is out of the unraced O’Reilly mare Diana Dors, whose first two foals Colville House and Sly Corner have been multiple winners in Australia.

The dam is a sister to the G2 Makybe Diva S. winner Vigor and the G2 Avondale Guineas winner Joey Massino and a half-sister to the inaugural Karaka Million winner Vincent Mangano.

Diana Dors has a juvenile filly by Tivaci and produced a daughter of Ardrossan last season and is in foal to Staphanos.
