Our weight for age star THESEO continued his great form and SCORED ANOTHER STUNNING GROUP 1 VICTORY, this time in the Ranvet Stakes over 2,000 metres at Rosehill, defeating Melbourne Cup winner Viewed. Ranked as one of Australia's best horses, THESEO HAS NOW WON AT GROUP 1 LEVEL 3 TIMES and together with his Group 2 win in the St George Stakes at Caulfield, THESEO's imposing weight for age record, now has the gelding as THE LEADING CONTENDER FOR THE TITLE OF AUSTRALIA'S HORSE OF THE YEAR, this season. In another superb ride by Nash Rawiller, THESEO took the lead shortly after the start in the Ranvet, was able to dictate the pace in the race, and held off all challengers to win by a length and a quarter. We purchased THESEO at the Magic Millions sales for $120,000 (+ GST) and his career earnings to date of $2.13 million certainly prove that our change of strategy several years ago of deciding to buy the better quality horses was the right one.
CONGRATULATIONS TO ALL THE THESEO OWNERS
