Lightly raced stallion Doyadeal was our Bred To Win tip on December 29 but trainer Giuseppe Alati decided to wait for another day. That comes on Friday in the Mornington Peninsula Dental Hcp (Race 7 at 5.57pm AEDT).
Doyadeal (4h Stravinsky – Matriarch by Zabeel) didn’t face the starter until last July when he scored at Bairnsdale. He was sidelined for another five months before resuming with an unlucky effort at Bendigo on December 10 but he made amends with a convincing victory back at Bairnsdale on December 21.
Alati bought Doyadeal for $120,000 at the 2008 Magic Millions 2yo HIT Sale. He is by Cambridge shuttler Stravinsky from a mare related to NZ 2000 Guineas winner Hulastrike (Straight Strike).
