New Stakes-Winner for Stratum
Well-known WA based owner/breeders Bob and Sandra Peters have enjoyed phenomenal success over the summer months in Perth and our top class sire Stratum provided them with another feature race winner on Saturday when Battle Hero saluted in the Listed WATC Lex Piper Stakes.
A promising three year-old gelding prepared by Grant Williams, Battle Hero had his first try at Black Type company and emerged triumphant in taking out the 1600 metre contest by a length.
He has the impressive record of three wins and a second from four starts with prizemoney just shy of $100,000 and is nominated for the Group II WATC Derby in April.
Bred and retained to race by Bob and Sandra Peters, Battle Hero is the first foal of winning O’Reilly mare Fromm (NZ), who comes from the family of Group winners No Excuse Maggie, Tootsie and former smart juvenile Hussousa.
Battle Hero is the 27th stakes-winner for Stratum, who has 14 entries for the Inglis Premier Yearling Sale starting Sunday.
