Econsul colt springs upset in Red Centre

Woodside Park stallion Econsul sired his first winner when Mr Jansz caused an upset in the $25,000 Inglis Red Centre Classic (1200m) on Monday.

Mr Jansz (2c Econsul – Aviation by Flying Spur) had the drop on Casino Exit who was trapped three-wide and that helped him edge out the odds-on favourite by a short-head on Alice Springs Cup day.

Mr Jansz is trained locally by Kevin Lamprecht and he was a $10,175 buy at last year’s Red Centre yearling sale.

Group 1 Caulfield Guineas winner Econsul is by in-form Snippets sire Pins out of a Centaine mare.  “Econsul’s first yearlings were very well received at the sales,” Woodside Park’s bloodstock manager Dean Harvey said.  “Buyers were impressed by the amount of strength he can throw, which is a good sign for horses racing under Australian conditions.”

Econsul stands with Irish Derby winner Grey Swallow (Daylami) at Woodside Park which is owned by former Toll Holdings chairman Peter Rowsthorn.  It’s located on 130 hectares at Tylden in central Victoria.
