Rosehill Winner for Churchill
Galileo’s champion son Churchill featured at Rosehill on Saturday when the Ingham family homebred Robusto (3g Churchill x She’s Clean, by Redoute’s Choice) scored a tenacious win.
Trained by Chris Waller, Robusto was Group III placed last year and hit his best form to score an all the way win in the Benchmark 78 event over 1500m.
He jumped fast and took up the lead for Kerrin McEvoy fighting off all challengers to win by a head taking his overall record to three wins and four placings from 15 starts with earnings topping $287,000.
Robusto was foaled and raised at Coolmore for the Ingham family and was also broken in and educated at their Jerry’s Plains farm.
He is the third foal and first winner for Group III winning Redoute’s Choice mare She’s Clean, who was bought by the Ingham family for $300,000 from the 2010 Inglis Australian Easter Yearling Sale.
She was also trained by Chris Waller and went on to win over $700,000 on the track. She’s Clean is a blue-blood being closely related to Group I winning Redoute’s Choice mares Abbey Marie and Absolutely as well as dual Group I winning $2.2million earner Nettoyer.
