First-season sire Slade Power added another winner to his record on Tuesday, 24 July in convincing fashion when his son Louis Treize easily won the six-furlong Novice at Newcastle.
Sent off as firm favourite, having finished a very promising second on his racecourse debut at Doncaster earlier this month, Richard Spencer’s charged tracked the leader during the early stages, before making his move with two furlongs left to run. Once asked to quicken, he soon took up the running and eased clear to eventually win by three lengths.
Louis Treize was bred by James Hanly and is out of the juvenile winner Black Rodded (Bahamian Bounty), herself a full sister to Black Type winner Queen’s Grace. They are from the family of G1 Darley July Cup winner Sakhee’s Secret.
Dual G1-winning sprinter Slade Power is also sire of the winning Stakes-placed filly Strings Of Life, plus promising colt Hesslewood, who holds an entry in this Saturday’s Listed Winkfield Stakes on King George day at Ascot.
