Age of Chivalry salutes at Caulfield

Age of Chivalry notched up career win number three with a front running performance at Caulfield - Bruno Cannatelli
Age of Chivalry notched up career win number three with a front running performance at Caulfield

Bruno Cannatelli

Age of Chivalry scored his first win of the season when proving too strong for his rivals in the Blue Star Print Handicap (1400m).

The four-year-old son of He’s Remarkable dictated the pace up front under a controlled ride from Damian Lane before accelerating away to win by 1.3L from fellow New Zealand-bred Rox The Castle.

“We were a bit worried before the race, he was a bit fresh around the back when we were saddling him,” co-trainer Mathew Ellerton said.

“He had his raceday head on around the front here and Damian (Lane) took luck out of the equation today.

“We are pretty happy (with how he has come back). He probably needs to grow up in the brain a little bit.

“He can be a task but we have to chip away at the moment. He is only a rating 76 horse prior to today and he has only won a benchmark 84 today.”

Ellerton, who trains in partnership with Simon Zahra, said they had no set plans going forward with Age of Chivalry but were likely to return to Caulfield in a fortnight’s time.

“Making any solid plans with him is hard to do but he is down in the ratings and if he gets enough points today we will go to an open handicap here in a fortnight,” he said.

“Damian has done a fair bit of work with him so he knows him very well. He rides him work and has had a fair bit to do with his education, he is a horseman and a thinker and also a very good jockey.”

Age of Chivalry was pinhooked out of Mapperley Stud's Festival Yearling draft in 2017 before returning to the New Zealand Bloodstock auction ring as a Ready To Run two-year-old when sold for $50,000 by Curraghmore.  

Age of Chivalry is rarely out of the money having won three of his eight starts and finishing runner-up on three other occasions. -NZ Racing Desk
