Tavidance’s star continues to rise7 Aug 2020

Progressive performer Tavidance added another winning strike at Flemington to his burgeoning record this afternoon.

The lightly-tried son of Tavistock turned in a sparkling performance to post the fourth win of his eight-start career.

Rider Jamie Kah had him travelling easily in third spot to the turn before peeling wide to make their claim.

Tavidance strode to the front 300 metres from home and surged clear to win untouched by a widening six lengths.

“That’s a big thrill and everything worked out so well,” co-trainer and part-owner Michael Kent Jnr said.

“There was a rolling tempo, which allowed them to get off the fence, a soft track and he was impressive.

“We’ll take him through the grades and we’ve always thought he was an open class horse, if not even better.”

Tavidance was bred by Dr. Gene Tsoi and was sold for $220,000 as a yearling via the Maluka Thoroughbreds draft at the Inglis Melbourne Premier Sale.

Tavidance completed a good day for the progeny of Tavistock with Tavi Mac and Tavion Prince and King’s Command successful at Hawera, Rosehill and Kranji respectively. successful at Hawera and Rosehill respectively.
