Stockman rounds them up again

Stockman rounds them up again7 Jun 2020

Trainer Joseph Pride collected another consolation prize today with his rising staying star Stockman when he was successful over 2100 metres at Warwick Farm.

Pride rated the son of Tavistock a genuine Gr.1 Queensland Derby prospect and was disappointed the race fell victim to the revamped winter carnival in Brisbane.

Bred and sold by Cambridge Stud, Stockman had also won his previous start and now has the tidy record of four victories from eight appearances.

"If there was a Queensland Derby this year, I'd said I would love to be in it but it wasn't to be, but we might make up for that somewhere down the track, I think,” Pride said.

"He is a genuine stayer who is only going to get better as he gets a bit older and a bit stronger.”

Stockman took on the older horses in the TAB Handicap and after hitting the front early in the run home he held a strong gallop to the line.

A $175,000 Karaka yearling, he is a son of the Gr.2 Championship Stakes winner Crimson.

The daughter of Zabeel has also produced the multiple Group Two winner Abidewithme and the stakes winner and Group One performer Miss Scarlatti.
