New Stakes-Winner for Oratorio

The Simon Miller trained Miss Solis (2f Oratorio x Longoria, by Lujain) maintained her unbeaten record making it three wins in as many starts when she took the Listed WATC Supremacy Stakes at Ascot by a length.

A $32,000 purchase for Aquanita Racing from the Manx Park draft at the 2011 Inglis Classic Yearling Sale, Miss Solis has already won $117,200 in prizemoney for her lucky owners Ray Meadowcroft and Peter Bell, who won this race last year with Single Spice.

Miss Solis will now head towards the Group II WATC Karrakatta Plate on March 31.

Miss Solis is the 16th stakes-winner worldwide for Danehill’s triple Group I winning son Oratorio and is the second foal of Sydney metropolitan winner Longoria, who comes from the family of Melbourne Cup winner Jezabeel.

Oratorio very nearly posted a two state stakes double with his top class son Manawanui (3g Oratorio x Lady Remlap, by Filante) first over the line in the Group II ATC Hobartville Stakes at Rosehill, before losing the race on protest to Wild and Proud.

Already a Group I winner having taken out the ATC Golden Rose in the spring, Manawanui looks set for a very successful autumn campaign.

Oratorio was pounced on by Australian breeders last spring looking for a proven sire at a value price, covering 166 mares at a fee of $11,000.
