Lion roars at Sandown

Lion roars at Sandown19 Jan 2022

The lightly raced Logan Street Lion has made a cracking start to his career in Victoria with further success at Sandown.

The four-year-old son of Tavistock is trained at Chris Waller’s Flemington stable and now has two wins and three placings from his five appearances.

A debut winner at Geelong last season, he then finished in the money in his next two appearances before a break.

Logan Street Lion was runner-up when resuming earlier this month at Sandown and was a comfortable winner there over 1400 metres on his latest return visit.

Bred by Tim Harrison who was a Tavistock shareholder, the gelding was purchased by Albert Bosma’s Go Racing out of Te Runga Stud’s New Zealand Bloodstock National Yearling Sale draft for $120,000.

He is a son of the multiple winner and Group performer Napa Sky, a daughter of Stravinsky and a half-sister to the dam of this season’s stakes-winning two-year-old Bright Blue Sky.

Napa Sky is a half-sister to the G2 Tatt’s Winter Stakes winner and Group 1 placegetter La Sizeranne and the Cambridge Stud family of top-flight winners Grosvenor and National Gallery.

Further back on the pedigree page are the multiple Group 1 winners Lonhro and Lankan Rupee, both former Australian Horses of the Year.
