Infinite Sign is an imposing and handsome pacer who is giving every indication of developing into a leading candidate for the $200,000 WA Derby on November 4.

The big, strong gelding, who is prepared by champion trainers Greg and Skye Bond, gave a sample of his class with a brilliant victory in the $25,000 Westsired Pace, a listed classic for three-year-old colts and geldings at Gloucester Park on Friday night.

Driven confidently by star reinsman Ryan Warwick, Infinite Sign, a $3.60 chance, dashed forward from the outside barrier on the back line and raced in the breeze with $7.50 chance Flying Rumour setting a brisk pace.

Warwick was able to angle Infinite Sign to the pegs behind Flying Rumour during the final lap before he surged to the front on the home turn and raced away to win by four lengths from Flying Rumour, rating 1.56.8 over the 21230m journey.

“We had to be positive and go forward tonight because he is a bit struggly off the track (out wide) and we wanted to be in a position where we could let him dominate, and if he was good enough, to win,” said Warwick.

“Taking a sit behind the leader in the last lap was a good opportunity to catch a bit of a breather. He is quite strong, and I was confident he could wear down the leader.

“Now he’s got the Westbred Classic (a $100,000 event on September 9), and then he should be a good WA Derby horse. He certainly wouldn’t be out of place in the Derby.”

Infinite Sign is by Indomitable Saab and is out of Never Waver Lombo, who earned $109,662 from 11 wins and 20 placings from 79 starts. He now has raced 13 times for five wins, two placings and stakes of $45,407.

His full-brother Infinite Symbol has had 81 starts for 19 wins, 25 placings and $223,758. He was driven by Warwick at ten of his 14 WA wins, including two group 3 events at Gloucester Park in 2019, before being sent to America in February 2020 where he has won another five times.
