Promising Winner Raised and Sold by Widden
The powerful Chris Waller stable has a plethora of classy three year-olds emerging and among them is the smart Warwick Farm winner Vanbrugh, a $100,000 Inglis Easter purchase from the draft of Widden Stud.
A winner at Randwick on debut back in February, Vanbrugh was held in high regard and considered a Golden Rose prospect at the start of this preparation, but has taken time to come to hand.
Stepped up to 1600 metres and taking on older horses, the Encosta de Lago colt finished with a rush to win by more than two lengths and is obviously back on track.
Entered for races such as the Group I ATC Spring Champion Stakes and Group II MRC Caulfield Classic, Vanbrugh may yet deliver on the promise he has shown.
Vanbrugh was foaled and raised at Widden Stud for his breeder Mr Leung and is the second winner for Soho Secret, a metropolitan winning half-sister by Lucky Owners to Group winners Sportsman, Prisoner of Love, Hoystar and King of Prussia.
