Lonhspresso has won the Group 2 Euclase Stakes, which took place at Morphettville Racecourse today march 11, 2013.
The Lonhro filly won the race by a nose ahead of the quick finishing Essay Raider, who placed second, and Shamal Wind, who finished in third.
Lonhspresso has now won three of her five race starts and has earned close to $200,000 in prize money during her short career.
Trainer Darren Weir felt the win was a good sign of things to come for Lonhspresso.
“She’s always shown good ability,” the Ballarat trainer said.
“Her two wins have been very good but obviously (today was a ) massive class step.”
Weir confirmed Lonhspresso would now have a lengthy spell in the paddock to prepare for the spring racing carnival.
“I would say paddock now. She deserves a rest,” he said.
“(We will) bring her back for the spring.
“She’s showed a few little signs that this would be about the end of her.”
The trainer feels Lonhspresso is yet to perform to her true potential and will begin to show her true ability later this year.
“She’s still got plenty of improvement in her,” Weir revealed.
“(She’s) not completely there action wise”
Jockey Ben Melham agreed with Weir’s assessment of Lonhspresso following the 2013 Euclase Stakes.
“I really like her,” Melham said.
“I’ve always thought she would reach the top.
“Her legs are going a bit quick for her body now. When she puts it all together she’ll make a really smart horse.”
