Richly-bred colt stars at trials
A well-related Sacred Falls two-year-old is showing that he has inherited a good measure of the family ability.
The colt made his first trial appearance at Avondale this week and won his 800-metre heat in a tidy fashion.
Under Jonathan Riddell, he jumped well to lead and, after railing professionally, he held a strong gallop down the straight.
The juvenile is a son of the Listed Creswick Stakes winner Glam Slam, a daughter of Pins.
She is a sister to the Gr.3 Lion Reed Plate winner Crepe De Chine and the prolific family of dual Group One winner Glamour Puss.
