Debut Win for Desert War Brother
Kembla – Barrier trial watchers have been eagerly awaiting the debut of six-time Group I winner Desert War’s three year-old brother Our Desert Warrior and they couldn’t help but be impressed with his sparkling first up win at Kembla on Saturday.
The Gai Waterhouse trained colt was sent out favourite for the 1500 metre maiden and flew home late to win by more than a length in an eye-catching performance.
A $260,000 Inglis Easter purchase from the draft of Widden Stud, Our Desert Warrior runs for a syndicate of Waterhouse stable clients and is entered for the Group I VRC Victoria Derby.
Bred by Gooree Stud, Our Desert Warrior is the seventh winner from seven foals to race from remarkable producer High Heels, a half-sister by Canny Lady to stakes-winner Actress.
High Heels has left not one but two Group I winners with $3million earner Desert War and Group I ATC Rosehill Guineas winner Laser Hawk her best offspring to date.
