Devonport broke his maiden today at only his second race start when winning well over 1350m at Ipswich. The son of Myboycharlie out of April In Venice was bred at Newhaven Park Stud and was a $30000.00 purchase at the Magic Millions for long time Hong Kong based Clients. Co trainer Bryan Guy commented after the race that it’s great to win another race for the clients as they have raced horses in the stable for well over 30 years and have been big supporters of the stable.
Devonport was ridden by Paul Hammersley who when asked about the horse after the race made the following comments “he has improved since his first up run and still has much improvement in him as he is still learning and I can’t wait till he steps up over further then today as he feels like a nice middle distance to staying horse.”
Devonport will continue to be put through his grades and stepped up in distance with the long-term goal to qualify him for Hong Kong.
