Medieval Man, who ended a losing sequence of eleven when he coasted to an easy all-the-way victory in the 2130m The West Australian Pace at Gloucester Park on Friday night, is proving a wonderful performer for the Davies family.
The five-year-old was bred by Graeme Davies, who owns the Renaissance Man gelding in partnership with his daughters Patrice and Kiara.
Thirty-one-year-old Kiara prepares the gelding at Mundijong, and his victory boosted his record to 72 starts for 14 wins and 16 placings for stakes of $114,826.
Medieval Man is out of So Crimsonandclova, a Bettors Delight mare who won six times from 34 starts, with Kiara driving her to victory twice, at Kalgoorlie and Harvey.
Medieval Man, driven by Shannon Suvaljko, was the $1.70 favourite from barrier No. 3. “Once he got straight to the front, he was going to be hard to beat,” said Suvaljko.
Kiara Davies said that Medieval Man had been a very good little horse, declaring that “I can’t see why he can’t win more races.”
