Running double for Al Samer

Al Samer sustained his winning run when Magnetosphere and Al Jandar completed a running double on Sunday and Monday.  The Emirates Park Victoria freshman has sired four first-crop winners in the last month.

Magnetosphere (2f Al Samer – Magnetic Force by El Moxie) is a Woodlawn Park homebred for the Larter family and she won the Dulcie Venetta Perry Memorial (1100m) in Hobart.  The filly started an odds-on favourite after being placed at all of her previous 7 starts.   She was coming off a second to unbeaten youngster Socks (Keep The Faith) in the Tasmanian Sires’ Produce Stakes.

Al Jandar (2g Al Samer – Cica Cica Boom by Canny Lad) looked a top prospect when he won the NMIT 2YO Maiden Plate (1100m) at Ararat on Monday.  The Robbie Griffiths trained youngster raced on the pace and then powered clear to score by more than four lengths.

A month ago, Al Samer colt Choegouigippeum defeated older rivals in South Korea.  He streeted the placegetters by more than five lengths in a 1200m event for foreign bred horses at Busan.

A week later, fellow Al Samer colt Mr Chard opened his account at Flemington.  The Dean Lawson trained galloper buttered up seven days later to finish second to Precious Lorraine in the Listed Gibson-Carmichael Stakes at headquarters.  The form out of that race will hold up come the spring carnival.

Custom Design had notched the first of Al Samer’s five winners to date when she won at Tamworth in February.

Al Samer is by emerging sire of sires Redoute’s Choice and has been based at Emirates Park in Digger’s Rest since 2006.  He was a G3 winner of the Canberra Black Opal Stakes and will stand for a $7,700 (inc gst) in 2010.
