Promising Asateer Loses Race on Protest
Nicely bred I Am Invincible 3YO colt Asateer has won again for trainer Lloyd Kennewell, only to lose the race in the Stewards’ room. Passed-in by Coolmore Stud at the 2018 Magic Millions Gold Coast Yearling Sale, Asateer (I Am Invincible-Isstoora, by High Chaparral) looked to have made it 3 wins and 2 second placings from just 5 starts when crossing the line around a length clear in the last race at Cranbourne yesterday. Despite jumping well, Asateer was forced to face the breeze over the 1000m scamper, and was held together well by Zac Spain who let the colt have his head wheeling for home. Unfortunately, the descendant of the famous Dancing Show family appeared to shift inwards after straightening, with runner-up Shotgun Rosie badly hampered as a consequence.
