Inside Agent Wins Listed Poseidon Stakes

Tuesday, 4th October 2016

At Flemington in Melbourne, former Cambridge Stud shuttler Stravinsky (Nureyev-Fire The Groom, by Blushing Groom) added a black-type success when talented colt Inside Agent (Stravinsky-Octapussy, by Octagonal) swooped from the rear of proceedings to win by a half-length for trainer Nigel Blackiston in the $120,000 Listed Poseidon Stakes (1400m) for 3YOs, over fellow colts Magnarock (Magnus-Priceless Diamond, by Rock of Gibraltar) & Peacock (Lonhro-Iridescente, by Commands). The subject of some decent wagers following a luckless 6th on debut, Inside Agent slotted in at the back of the field in a race where the first 500 metres was run into the eye of a blustery headwind, before sliding out from behind his cover in the home straight. Inside Agent was a NZ$180,000 yearling consigned by Cambridge Stud at the 2015 NZB National Sales Series at Karaka. His dam Octapussy was runner-up in the Gr1 Doomben Cup, and Inside Agent is a half-brother to the O'Reilly stakes-winning siblings Pussy Willow & Pussy O'Reilly (also Gr1-placed). His 2 starts have yielded 1 win for $74,800 earnings.
