Madame Du Gast gives De Gaulle first win on debut

Our home-bred filly Madame du Gast (x Special Bond mare Tremolo) won her maiden on debut at Flemington over 1000m on January 21st.

It gave our stallion De Gaulle his first winner, made all the better by being at Metropolitan grade. 

‘That is the first winner by our stallion De Gaulle so for all those people that supported him, I thank you’, said a delighted Richard Anderson after the race.  

I’d like to thank Zac Spain who has done a lot of work in educating her. He was very confident about her chances today it’s just a pity he wasn’t involved in the rapid series,

The young fella (Cartwright) had a good conversation with Zac who filled him in about the filly.

From the first time Zac rode her in a jumpout he came back and said this is special.

Richard is over the moon. He bred the horse, has the stallion, got the mare, and has a full-sister getting ready to go to the sales, so it’s win, win everywhere.

There is plenty of improvement. As you could see coming down the straight, she still had her head to the side. She was not sure what to do and she is still a baby.  

She is a straightforward horse – does well and is very tough, so we will let her tell us where we go from here.
