Four-year-old gelding Dominic scored the first win of him fledgling career at Kranji on Sunday night.
The Saimee Jumaat-trained son of Rock ‘N’ Pop made a late barnstorming run home to win the Class 5 1200m event, by a narrow margin, over Don’t Worry and the more experienced Fighting Warrior.
Bred in partnership by Austramore Pty Ltd, Calder Bloodstock Ltd and Gordon Cunningham, Dominic is the fifth foal out of Gr.2 City of Auckland Cup winner and multiple stakes performer Highflying (Entrepreneur).
Highflying has produced four named foals all of which are now winners. Dominic is a half-brother to stakes performed mare Media World (O’Reilly), multiple race winner Thien Ly (Stravinsky) and Power Lift (Power) who was a recent winner at Wyong for trainer Chris Lees.
Dominic was initially purchased by Tried and True Bloodstock, out of Curraghmore’s 2015 New Zealand Bloodstock Weanling Sale draft for $35,000, he had two trials in Australia Matthew Smith, for a win and a second placing before transferring to Jumaat’s ownership.
Dominic's win topped off a great weekend for Cm graduates in Singapore, following the success of Heart of Courage and Sacred Sham on Friday night.
