Lonhro & Niello Full-Brother Wins Trial
Since June 1 former Woodlands & now Darley 11-time Gr1-winning World Champion Miler & Australian Racehorse-Of-The-Year Lonhro (Octagonal-Shadea, by Straight Strike) has sired 19 winners in 3 states, including juvenile stakes-winning filly Custard, according to Sydney's Daily Telegraph. Yesterday a full-brother to Lonhro & Chatswood Stud stallion Niello came from behind to win his 900m trial in Sydney. The 4YO gelding called Eighto (Octagonal-Shadea, by Straight Strike) was ridden by jockey Kerrin McEvoy who said, "As for Eighto, there's a bit of hype around him because of his bloodlines. He won on debut on the synthetic track at Geelong fairly easily, but he's a horse who is definitely going to win more races." Eighto has 1 win & 1 placing from 2 starts.
