Tomorrowland shows his quality
27 November 2015
Tomorrowland laid down a marker for the upcoming sprint features with a dynamic performance at Otaki this afternoon. The WS graduate put a competitive line-up to the sword in the Listed Levin Stakes to boost his Group One hopes.
“He needs to be ridden quietly and he was ridden beautifully by Craig (Grylls),” trainer Danica Guy said. The Fast ‘N’ Famous five-year-old trailed the leader to the turn and, once into the clear, he strode to the front 150 metres from home for a convincing victory.
“It was a perfect speed and the plan was to take a sit and it worked out well,” rider Craig Grylls said. “I got the split and he quickened up and put them away nicely.”
Tomorrowland has now won six of his 15 starts and with In Style, also by Fast ‘N’ Famous, will give Guy a strong hand in the feature sprints. The latter won the Gr 1 Railway Stakes earlier this year and she has recently returned after a brief stint in Melbourne.
An $8000 Select Sale purchase, Tomorrowland is out of the winning Pins mare Needled. She is a sister to the Gr 3 Cuddle Stakes winner Rhysess with their mother the Gr 3 Lowland Stakes winner Sahrhys.
