Son Of Australia Completes Hat Trick With Impressive Stakes Success

The progressive Crystal Pegasus (5g Australia - Crystal Etoile, by Dansili) may now be aimed at the $2,000,000 Sydney Cup after running out an impressive winner of Saturday’s Listed Roy Higgins Quality at Flemington.

Jamie Kah partnered the Chris Waller-trained chesnut to a five length success; his third consecutive win for the team. Speaking after the race, Kah said, “He was absolutely cruising to the 1000m, the 800m, and I still felt like he had the race won on the turn. He was electric when I let him go.”

Representing Waller, Jo Taylor added, “It was quite an easy watch. He did everything you like to see in a run like that and when he moved up you sit there and wonder if he’s going to go on with it and I think he certainly did.”

Crystal Pegasus was purchased by Chris Waller for 190,000gns out of the Sir Michael Stoute stable, for whom he scored twice. The son of Australia was bred by Southcourt Stud out of a half-sister to Crystal Ocean.
