Cummings Northern Meteor 2YO Serves Notice
Fresh from saddling unbeaten 2YO colt Eurozone ((Northern Meteor-Miss Vandal, by Don't Say Halo) at Rosehill over the weekend, trainer Bart Cummings produced his third individual winner by Widden Stud's Northern Meteor (Encosta de Lago-Explosive, by Fappiano) at Kembla Grange yesterday. The well named 2YO filly Streaking Rocket (Northern Meteor-History Maker, by Rubiano) showed her well credentialled rivals a clean pair of heels to become her sire's 17th individual first crop winner, extending his lead in the freshman sires' race. Co-trainer James Cummings suggested the filly will start again at Canterbury in two weeks against a field of non-city winners. Steaking Rocket was bred by, and is owned by Gooree Pastoral in whose colours Northern Meteor raced.
