A Saintly victory

Faith in a slowly maturing son of Pentire paid off at the Ararat Cup meeting on Sunday, the promising St Ives appreciating a step up in distance to record a soft victory.
Third up from a spell, the handsome chestnut had not enjoyed a lot of luck at his first two runs but he was nicely primed and well ridden to record his second victory from just nine starts.
Working across to sit just behind the leaders, St Ives was always travelling well for Luke Currie who was confident a fair way from home - "I was a little pessimistic early," he said, "as I was worried that he was not going to get a sit - but he dropped in behind them and enjoyed a lovely trail."

"I was only kidding to him 100m out," he continued, "and then he came up to them and won as he liked!"
A $46,000 Karaka purchase by Paul Moroney, St Ives is out of the six times winning Famous Star mare Top Cut - half sister to the dual Gr.3 winner Whetu from the family of the two times Gr.1 winning sprinter Javelin.
