"Quality comes through over the sprint" and no better place to reveal a young horse's God-given talents than over Scottsville's testing finishing straight.
Bouncing smartly from an outside draw at 1200m Sunday, Humidor tacked quickly over to mid field under the experienced Anton Marcus. Thick in the action at the 500m marker, the colt needed scant urging as he shifted gear; charged to the fore and powered ahead to extinguish his opposition by an increasing three lengths.
This smart son of Miesque's Approval, a graduate of the Backworth draft of the 2013 Emperors Palace National Yearling Sale, takes his career tally to an impressive 2 wins and a place from 3 starts.
Congratulations to trainer Tony Rivalland and to fellow winning connections; Marc Horsfield, Gary Cumming, Ian Deetlefs, Arthur Potts and Mrs Mary Liley.
Humidor is a beautiful looking horse. He is loaded with ability, has a superb action and a great temperament.... just the ingredients that bode well for a very exciting future!
