Host Continues To Serve Up Winners
With undefeated stakes-winner Phillipi (Host-Soorena, by Encosta De Lago) the flagship for exciting Swettenham stallion Host (Hussonet-Colonna-Traiana, by Roy), Host Of The Party (Host-Pipkin by Gallo di Ferro) added to his impressive winner total when scoring on debut at Seymour on Sunday. Saliently, 63% of Host's winners have now saluted either on debut or when first-up. Jockey Dwayne Dunn commented on the victory, "He's still learning and wasn't really travelling until the final furlong ... But I think he will be a serious horse once he gets up to a suitable trip." Host is standing at Swettenham this season at a fee of $7,500 inc GST.
