Mister President makes Debut14 Dec 2018
The aptly named Mr President (Sepoy-Mrs Kennedy) will make his raceday debut on Saturday when he steps out in the two-year-old event at Te Rapa for prominent owners Archer Equine Investments Ltd, racing in the blue and white colours made famous by the great Mufhasa.
Trained by Lance O’Sullivan and Andrew Scott, the son of high class two-year-old Sepoy was a $90,000 purchase by his owners at Karaka in January and has won the most recent of two trials in preparation for Saturday’s outing. Mr President showed good gate speed when winning his trial at Matamata and with the advantage of barrier one tomorrow, Leith Innes should have him in or near the lead should he begin well.
Mr President is out of the Fastnet Rock mare Mrs Kennedy, a half-sister to Oakleigh Plate winner Mrs Onassis and Group 3 winners Miss Judgement (dam of Missrock) Fifth Avenue Lady and Aussies Love Sport, while the third dam is MRC Blue Diamond Stakes winner Lady Jakeo.
