Deangelo-Dark Steel Double Up

Mar 29, 2016

Race horse owners Greg and Donna Kolivos struck winning form again, this time with Deangelo in the opening maiden at Newcastle (Beaumont) then Dark Steel later in the day on March 26.

By Northern Meteor out of Ms Bowie, race-favourite Deangelo jumped positive under Mitchell Bell from barrier eight and travelled four wide early to take on race leader Little Shocker.

The burley three-year-old colt however pulled away easily in the concluding stages of the 1150 metre event to record a length and half victory over Silver Art.

Hours later, Dark Steel duly saluted in the Hunter Life Education CG&E Class 1 Handicap (1200m) at the same venue carrying top weight (60kg) for gun apprentice rider Travis Wolfgram.

The Redoute’s Choice colt out of Wiener tracked wide early to join the leader before dominating the race for a strong half length victory over Nic’s Vendetta.

The victory produced a winning treble for the stable complementing Attention’s dominant victory in the Group 3 Schweppervescence Stakes earlier in the day at Rosehill.
