1st Winner For Freshman Sire Alert
On the Australian track yesterday, Kooringal Stud's Argentine Gr1-winning 8YO freshman stallion Alert (Southern Halo-Agustina's Dream, by Senor Pete) notched his 1st winner when 2YO filly Strike Alert (Alert-Strike Time, by Switch In Time) scored by 3.75-lengths on debut over 900m at Queanbeyan yesterday for trainer Neil Osborne. Alert (who covered 82 mares in his debut season at Wagga Wagga-based Kooringal in southern NSW) stood the 2010 season at $8,800. As a juvenile, Alert won a Gr1 over 1000m in 55.2sec (plus a Gr3 & 2 handicaps); he finished his career with 5 wins & 2 stakes runner-ups from 16 starts.
