Four More Winners for Onemorenomore (TBV)
Nov 15, 2016
Perth stayer Tonto highlighted a city-winning treble for Ridgeview Park sire Onemorenomore in the Listed Ascot Gold Cup (1800m) on Saturday.
The Ridgeview Park resident also sired Something More (Morphettville) and Darts Away (Rosehill) earlier in the day as well as Happy No More who scored a first-up, front-running victory at the Gold Coast.
The four winners on Saturday was more than any other sire in Australia or New Zealand.
Onemorenomore expat Master Steed is also on the boil in Hong Kong after starting his season with a fast-finishing second in the Panasonic Hcp (1200m) at Sha Tin on Saturday.
Tonto raced against his normal come-from-behind pattern to win at Ascot.
“After looking at the speed map, I told Jason (Brown) to go forward and it worked out perfectly,” trainer Lou Luciani said.
“I thought he was a certainty at the weights after his run in the Northam Cup.”
Racing in Peter Walsh’s Amelia Park colours, Tonto is a homebred for fellow part-owners Colin Hounsell and Colin Crossley and has now banked over $444,000 from 7 wins in 31 starts.
Tonto (5g Onemorenomore – Grier Garsonne by Arena) broke through for his first black-type victory at Ascot. He had been placed at Listed level in the Bunbury Cup, Roberts Quality, Lex Piper Stakes and was also fourth home in last year’s Group 2 WA Derby.
Represented by 37 winners since the start of the season, Onemorenomore is proving a reliably consistent stallion and Ridgeview could not be happier to have him on their roster.
“He is a lovely stallion who impresses all who see him,” said the stud’s Phil Sloane.
“He has settled in beautifully with us and has been a delight to have around.”
“His progeny are winning week in, week out and he is the ideal VOBIS horse,” he said of the Group One Champagne Stakes winning son of Red Ransom.
Ridgeview are offering a ‘nearing the end of spring’ special with a half-price service fee to both Onemorenomore and Al Samer who has also been enjoying a good run with his daughter Peeking Duck (a gallant fourth in the VRC Oaks) looking a horse of the future.
