Multiple champion stallion Savabeel’s half-brother Arlington (Red Ransom-Savannah Success, by Success Express) sired his first metropolitan winner in emphatic style last Saturday at Rosehill Gardens in Sydney.
Trained by Michelle Fleming (her first Sydney runner) and ridden by Chris O’Brien, The Lion (Arlington-Lion Belle, by Lion Heart) made it back to back wins following his recent successful outing at Scone when sweeping home for an effortless 2-lengths triumph in the TAB Highway Handicap (1100m).
The manner of his victory was similar to Arlington’s flashing third in the Gr1 Randwick Guineas (1600m) as a 3YO.
Arlington has now sired 15 individual winners of 30 races.
The Lion, who is being prepared to contest the Country Championships, now has 2 wins and 3 placings from 10 starts.
