Presidential Joy trumps rivals at Kilmore


Wednesday, 14 December 2016 - All American sired another promising maiden winner when Presidential Joy returned from a five-month spell for a narrow victory at Kilmore on Monday.


The Andrew Noblet-trained gelding settled on the pace and looked likely to win by panels before he was forced to fend off a late challenge from odds-on favourite Kotinos.


“He travelled well and felt good on the corner but got lost as soon as we hit the lead,” jockey Thomas Sadler reported after the Watergardens Plate (1112m).. “Nobby said he had been working very strongly at home so I held him together for one last crack.


PRESIDENTIAL JOY

“Today’s run will be beneficial. He’s tough and sensible but has to learn how to win.”


Presidential Joy had been placed at Pakenham during his first prep earlier this year after selling for $80,000 at the Melbourne Premier Yearling Sale. His dam Debra’s Joy (Danehill) is a three-quarter sister to World Peace (G3 Blue Diamond Preview) and a half-sister to Thorn Park (G1 Stradbroke Hcp).


Debra’s Joy was covered two years in a row by All American. His younger sister Donna's Joy is a homebred for Love Racing and is on the books with Darren Weir.


All American has sired 23 individual winners this season and his second juvenile winner isn’t far away. Lindsay Park colt American Genius will be one of the fancies for the Christmas Season Plate (1100m) at Flemington this Saturday.
