Bred by Corumbene Stud and sold through the 2010 Inglis Easter yearling Sale, Flying Spur gelding Flying Home, did exactly that, coming from back in the field on Ipswich Cup day to take out Race 2: Optus Ipswich Mile Benchmark Handicap over 1666m.
Trained at Eagle Farm by Barry Baldwin, Flying Home is now the winner of three from 17 and over $100,000 in career earnings for owner Mr R Sheahan.
Out of the Listed Canterbury Breeders’ Stakes-winning Zabeel mare Dame Cath, Flying Home is a three-quarter brother to three-time stakes winner and G1 runner-up Red Lord (Redoute’s Choice).
With four winners to date from five runners, Dame Cath is also the dam of Danehill Dancer mare Manatova, Anabaa gelding Gee Eff Cee and Danzero filly Alice.
The current yearling out of Dame Cath (pictured below), a full-sister to Flying Home was offered as Lot 65 at this year’s Inglis Easter yearling sale and was eventually knocked down to Belmont Bloodstock for $45,000.Back to News
