First Start for Night's Watch Half Sibling
Excelman (Reliable Man-Glory Run, by Exceed and Excel) will have his first start in the Ontoit Maiden Plate over 1200m at Pakenham today. The 3YO gelding, trained by Richard Laming, is the third named foal for winning mare Glory Run, and is a half-brother to Gr3 winner and Gr1 Toorak Handicap place getter Night's Watch (Redwood). Excelman was sold at the Magic Millions Gold Coast Yearling Sale for $400,00 by Westbury Stud and purchased by Laming Racing. Glory Run is a daughter of Gr1 Captain Cook Stakes winner Penny Gem (Pentire), while Reliable Man (Dalakhani) recently sired VRC Oaks winner Miami Bound (Reliable Man-Arapaho Miss, by Danehill Dancer).
