Stratocracy races away first up

What an impressive return to the track it was for Stratocracy at Sale on Thursday, the exciting four-year-old first up over 1400m racing way to an easy 1.3 length victory over some talented up-and-comers.

Lisa Cropp, Stratocracy’s regular partner in track work, was aboard and could not have been more impressed.

“This horse has always shown a lot of promise,” she enthused, adding that “he is definitely stakes class.”

“He just jumped out and travelled sweetly,” she said, adding that lightly raced and promising gelding is now ready to “really get up and going this campaign.”

Michael Moroney agrees – “he is going to be one of our big improvers this spring. He is a totally different horse this time in – he has really blossomed and he looks terrific.”

Raced by Gurners Bloodstock (manager Andrew Ramsden), Rupert & Cheryl Legh Racing, Christopher Pidcock, Lisa Barker, Rohan & Katherine Aujard, Noel & Judith Griffin and Michael Burn, Stratocracy is a son of Golden Slipper winner Stratum.

A $120,000 Melbourne Premier sale graduate, he is out of the multiple city winning Pentire mare Gemstone, full sister to the Moroney trained Gr.1 mare Penny Gem and half sister to the Listed winner Fairygem. This is the prolific Gr.1 family of Brawny Spirit, Hit The Roof, Alynda, Reward For Effort and Turffontein.
