El Poderoso scores in style

Tobougg gelding, El Poderoso, proved too strong notching his Maiden win at his second race start at Sale on Saturday.

His win provided a thrill for the owners, managed by long time stable client Aaron Lamshed who tasted success with Group 2 winner Ferocity. The syndicate contains many first time owners including Hawthorn captain Richard Vandenberg.

The $37,500 Magic Millions purchase is well related with Elvstroem and Haradasun in his pedigree as well as Danny O'Brien Racing stable stalwart, Gold Wells, the winner of both the Kensington and Blamey Stakes at Flemington.

Ridden by Jamie Mott, El Poderoso was slow to begin and while forced to cover ground, he lengthened when the opportunity arose to score what was a soft win in the finish. He showed good improvement after what was a very good fourth on debut at Ballarat to register his Maiden win, giving the stable and owners much to look forward to.
