Lord Rosco is Too Speedy

Lord Rosco notched his eleventh win from his past 13 starts when he began brilliantly, set the pace and sprinted over the final 400m in 27.3sec. to win the 2130m TABtouch Race Replays Pace in convincing fashion from Arma Indie and Rakasinc at Gloucester Park on Friday night.

Prepared in Bunbury by Stephen Reed, Lord Rosco, the $1.70 favourite, completed a driving double for Dylan Egerton-Green, who had won with Tyler Brett earlier in the night.

Fast beginner Rakasinc was second favourite at $3.10 from the prized No. 1 barrier. But he was unable to match Lord Rosco’s sparkling gate speed and Emily Suvaljko had to be content to take the sit behind the favourite. Rakasinc was hopelessly blocked for a clear passage in the final circuit and finished third.

The New Zealand-bred five-year-old Lord Rosco has done all his racing in Western Australia and boasts a fine record of 32 starts for 15 wins, 12 placings and $87,461 in stakes.

By Bettors Delight, Lord Rosco is the first foal out of American Grace, who had 25 starts for just one win and one placing for stakes of $9356.
