Tavisan too good at Caulfield

Tavisan too good at Caulfield29 May 2020

The well-related Tavisan furthered his record when successful on his home track at Caulfield this afternoon.

Bred by The Sunlight Trust, the four-year-old won for the fifth time in his career when he triumphed over 1100 metres.

He has proved a fine servant for trainers Mick Price and Michael Kent Jnr and is also a multiple stakes placegetter.

A son of the late Tavistock, he was a $135,000 Karaka yearling and is out of Volksraad mare Evanescence.

Evanescence hails from the family of the Gr.3 Stewards’ Handicap winner Reilly Lincoln and produced a full brother to Tavisan last spring.

Tavisan was part of a Saturday winning double in Victoria for Tavistock and the Price/Kent training combination.

Earlier in the day Holburt was a dominant 2.75 length winner at Bendigo, notching up his third career win.

Bred by Nearco Stud, Holburt is also out of a daughter of Volksraad.
