Two Out of Two for Proisir

Talented colt Proisir (3c Choisir x Prophet Jewel, by Encosta de Lago) took another big step in the right direction when scoring a dominant victory at Rosehill on Saturday. An impressive winner on debut at a midweek meeting last month, the Gai Waterhouse trained colt flew the gates from barrier 10 and surged quickly across to take up the lead. He controlled the race from that point for Nash Rawiller and coasted home to win the Benchmark 69 event over 1400 metres by more than two lengths. “He’s a very, very exciting horse,” Waterhouse said. "He hasn’t started for 31 days, they don’t often do that "He had to start from the outside gate and use quite a bit of petrol to get over there and take control of the race. When he came around the turn he just kicked again.” Proisir was bred and retained to race by Anthony and Mario Falcone, who also raced his mother Prophet Jewel, who was a smart Sydney metropolitan winner of six races by Encosta de Lago.
