Husson Lightning Strikes Early In New Season

Thursday, 2nd August 2012

WA Heytesbury Stud's young stallion Husson Lightning (Hussonet-Snip Snip, by Snippets) got the new season off to a flyer when 3YO colt Tempestuous Strike (Husson Lightning-La Lollabrigida, by Dauberval) scored by 3.25-lengths over 1000m at Belmont in Perth yesterday. Fittingly, Tempestuous Strike was Husson Lightning's 1st winner when victorious in November last year. Sent to the spelling paddock despite beating a hot field on debut, the decision looks likely to handsomely reward connections for their patience. Husson Lightning won the Gr3 Maribyrnong Plate over 1000m at Flemington, and his 6 placings included runner-up on debut in 2006's Listed Breeders Plate over 1000m at Randwick, plus 2007 runner-ups in the Magic Millions Classic over 1200m at the Gold Coast, Gr2 International Animal Health Silver Slipper Stakes over 1100m at Rosehill, Gr3 Skyline Stakes over 1200m at Randwick & Listed Concept Sports Stakes over 1410m at Flemington). Husson Lightning is standing the 2012 season for $5,500.
