Lord Barrington's First Metro Win

One of the stable's most consistent performers is the tough and talented Lord Barrington who reaffirmed his liking of soft tracks with a determined victory at Sandown on Saturday.

Recording the fourth win of his 22 start career and increasing his prize money tally to beyond $100,000, Lord Barrington was beautifully ridden by an in-form Jake Bayliss who rode Loyalty Man to victory for us seven days previously.

Gaining a run as first emergency into the George Malone Memorial Plate, Lord Barrington began well from barrier seven, taking a sit behind the leaders before hitting the lead with 250m to go.

Strongly challenged late by former Ballymore galloper Marwood, Lord Barrington held on gamely to break through for his first win at metropolitan level.

"Michael Moroney wanted me to have him as close as possible without being off the bridle," Bayliss reported, "and we landed in the one/one position which was absolute gold."

"I kept him together as long as I could and when I asked him for his effort he showed me a good turn of foot."

Representing Michael Moroney who is overseeing the Ballymore team in Queensland for the winter carnival (including Alaskan Rose who contests next weekend's Queensland Oaks), Anthony Feroce was delighted to see Lord Barrington atone for a somewhat unlucky Sandown fifth at his previous outing.

"He was a bit slow out of the gates there and got further back than we liked."

A horse who excels on tracks with the sting out, Lord Barrington was well suited by Saturday's conditions and we are hopeful that he can "race well right through the winter."

Raced in the well known navy and gold colours of Rupert and Cheryl Legh, Lord Barrington was purchased at the 2013 Karaka sale by Paul Moroney who also selected the second placed Marwood as a yearling.

A son of Darci Brahma, Lord Barrington is out of a full sister to a stable favourite, the Stradbroke Handicap winner Mr Baritone.

At the Karaka Yearling Sales earlier this year, Lord Barrington's full brother caught Paul Moroney's eye - a particularly powered individual, combined with knowing the family well, Paul purchased him. A Guineas prospect at 3 and Group class miler of the future. If you are interested in racing this horse with us, please contact Anthony Feroce on telephone 0412 084 132 or email
