With Sir Rastus, Attard’s Stable Eye More Winners Like Sons Of John
HAWKESBURY, Australia — Sir Rastus is a two-year-old colt making his debut today at the Skyline Stakes 2021. The 1,200-metre horse race will take place at the Royal Randwick Racecourse in Sydney, New South Wales. Since Sir Rastus participates in his first-ever competition today, his racehorse trainer Jason Attard hopes his fledgling black runner is off to a promising start and will bring home the bacon.
Winners of the Skyline Stakes 2021 will bag the $200,000 prize money. As his young galloper lines up in the horse race today, Attard expects his debutant to be among his stable’s pride. The one-half of the A. K. A. Racing’s management, which he runs together with his wife Lucy, is not shying away from challenges.
The Hawkesbury trainer’s stable has Sons Of John as among their winners. The eight-year-old brown gelding has made the Attards proud as the stable flag bearer, almost pulling off the unimaginable in the 2015 Theo Marks Stakes. Sons Of John sprinted the formidable mare Winx to a head margin. At the time of writing, Mountain Echo and Oratorio’s son has taken home $475,850 in prize money.
According to the news posted online by Australian daily horse racing news and tips portal Just Horse Racing, Attard and his spouse anticipate the inexperienced Sir Rastus making a dream first-ever performance. Additionally, in today’s Group Two Skyline Stakes 2021, the duo expects the black colt to upstage his more fancied opponents.
Attard confirmed that Sir Rastus is the debuting competitive and fast youngster that his stable had prepared. The Hawkesbury racehorse trainer remarked that Racy and Pierro’s son has the potential to battle against the top echelon of Sydney-based two-year-old racehorses. Attard affirmed that the Skyline Stakes 2021 is challenging for a new racehorse like Sir Rastus to debut in, though he relayed that his charge is a genuine professional.
Based on Attard’s descriptions, Sir Rastus has proven to be capable of handling his tests exceptionally well. The racehorse trainer cited that this feat makes his young galloper fit to get thrown in the deep end and have a crack. In the field of nine, Triple Crown winner Pierro’s flashy offspring has drawn barrier seven. They consist of the impressive Magic Millions victor Shaquero, Captivant, and Head Of State.
The Skyline Stakes 2021’s winner will obtain an automatic entry into the Golden Slipper 2021. This 1,200-metre horse racing event will take place on March 20 at the Rosehill Gardens Racecourse. If Sir Rastus makes it to the Golden Slipper 2021 and wins, he and his team will take home $3.5 million as the cash prize.
