Encosta 3YO Wins by Twelve

Promising colt Second Bullet (3c Encosta de Lago x Private Steer, by Danehill Dancer) cast off maiden status with a stunning display at Yarra Glen on Tuesday.

Prepared by Danny O’Brien, Second Bullet made a one act affair of the 1517 metre maiden, thrashing a field of 11 to win by a rare 12 length winning margin as a hot favourite.

Unlucky at his first two runs when he featured in the stewards reports after finishing second on debut at Seymour and then fourth at Moonee Valley, Second Bullet put it altogether for this performance and connections will be hoping it’s onwards and upwards.

A $235,000 Inglis Easter purchase for his trainer from the Coolmore draft, Second Bullet is the second winner for triple Group I winner and $3.4 million earner Private Steer, the daughter of Danehill Dancer one of 192 mares covered last spring by Champion 2YO Colt Pierro in his first season at stud.
