Lamasery Wins 2012 Hill Stakes on Way to Metropolitan

Lamasery continued his strong spring progression and scored his first win of the campaign at Randwick today with a strong finish in the Group 2 2012 Hill Stakes (2000m) at Randwick.

The six-year-old was held midfield on the fence before being pulled to the outside to chase leaders Ginga Dude, Lights Of Heaven and Mourayan at the top of the straight.

He accelerated well to take the lead inside the final 100m before showing toughness to hang on as Mourayan fought back only to be defeated a head.

Trainer David Vandyke was thrilled to see the six-year-old back and winning after an injury following last spring that threatened to end his career.

“That was a good class of field and it’s been a fantastic effort by everyone involved. This horse has been in work for eight months,” Vandyke said.

“There’s no I in Lamasery it’s been team…I didn’t think he’d get back here like this it’s just surreal that he’s won a Group 2.”

The son of Commands is being aimed at the Group 1 Metropolitan on October 6, a race he finished third in last year.

Jockey Peter Robl gave the winner of 11 of 21 starts a glowing endorsement ahead of the bigger events to come this spring.

“Dave, he’s a very good trainer and he’s got this horse peaking for Metropolitan day which is in a fortnight and he’s going to be very hard to beat in that race,” Robl said.

Mourayan finished runner-up while Lights Of Heaven bounced back from two disappointing runs to take third place.
