Rising Kiwi Galloper Has Romantic Look About Him

Friday, 12th June 2015

Displaying all the hallmarks of his famous full-sister, a hitherto unheralded 3YO gelding swept home for his Maiden win with enough authority to suggest a strong future, reports the informant.co.nz. A full-brother to Gr1 Australian Oaks heroine Rising Romance (Ekraar-Post Romance), Romelo broke through at his third time of asking with a scintillating stretch run to win going away by over 4-lengths in a 1600m Wanganui event. In what could turn out to be a bargain buy, owner-trainer Kevin Myers paid just NZ$13,000 for Romelo at the 2013 NZ Bloodstock Ready To Run Sale, just days after the gelding's now famous sister had won her own Maiden.
