Tavistock’s son a star on the rise

Tavistock’s son a star on the rise9 Feb 2022

Logan Street Lion continued his progression through the Victorian ranks at Sandown over 1400 metres and regular rider Damien Thornton believes the son of the late Tavistock will be more of a force to be reckoned with when stepped up in trip.

The lightly raced four-year-old has now won three of his six starts and with a further three minor placings on his record the Chris Waller-trained representative is certainly an exciting prospect.

Logan Street Lion broke quickly from the inside gate to settle in the trail, but in a slowly run race was left a touch flat-footed when the pace cracked on at the top of the straight before finishing powerfully in the closing stages to add to his winning record.

“He took a little while to wind up and is looking for a mile now. He was really good late and that will help him going forward into the better races,” Thornton said.

Logan Street Lion was bred by Tim Harrison, who was a Tavistock shareholder, and 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.

The final crop of Tavistock will be offered at next month’s New Zealand Bloodstock’s National Yearling Sale and we will offer seven quality representatives – Lots 20, 22, 49, 92, 438, 443 and 468 - in our Book 1 draft.
