Promising New Winner for Churchill
Galileo’s champion son Churchill added a new Australian winner to his tally when promising gelding Lord Randolph (3g Churchill x Original Sin, by Shinzig) opened his account at Pinjara on Thursday.
Trained by Lindsey Smith, Lord Randolph was a last start third at Belmont and appreciated a step up in trip to 1600m to score by more than a length at his third start.
Lord Randolph was bred and retained to race by Martin’s Park Investments and is the second winner from an unraced half-sister to Group I winner Bel Sprinter and Group III winner Performer.
He is the third Australian winner for Churchill, who recently sired his first Group I winner with Vadeni taking out the Group I French Derby at Chantilly.
Churchill returns to Australia this spring at a fee of $22,000.
