Big Things Ahead

Two winners in two days is just a sign of things to come for Lynward Park’s Alfred Nobel.

Sunset Pete won the Perth Racing Corporate Membership Handicap (1400m) at Belmont Park on Wednesday then Sondheim took the Gannons Handicap, also over 1400m, at Northam on Thursday. And he has the favourite, Fontainebleau, running in tomorrow’s Listed $100,000 Belmont Oaks.

The Irish Group 1 winning Alfred Nobel, from one of Europe’s most successful maternal lines, has covered over 200 mares during the past two seasons.

He stands this year at $4,950, including GST.
