Moreira Makes Frankie Lor Owners Superich9 Apr 2018
The Red Giant gelding Superich was super impressive when scoring on debut at Sha Tin on Sunday when he sat up behind the speed for leading hoop Joao Moreira over the 1000m before quickening up in impressive style to put a gap between himself and his rivals.
Bred by Gerry Harvey, Superich is a striking individual and was a $44,000 Ready to Run purchase for regular buyers Upper Bloodstock. Trained by Frankie Lor, Superich is raced by the Crown Glory Syndicate and is half-brother to the very good galloper Hold it Harvey who won 14 races during his career including a Group 2 victory in the MRC Awapuni Gold Cup and recorded Group 1 placings in the ARC New Zealand Stakes, WRC International Stakes, HBRC Spring Classic, HBRC Windsor Park Plate, and the Otaki Maori WFA with total stake earnings of $728,000.
Superich went through Karaka as a yearling but failed to make his reserve and was then reoffered through the Ready to Run as a two-year-old where he was sold to his current connections. The gelding had two educational trials from the stable of Ken & Bev Kelso for a win and a second before heading to Hong Kong where he has trialled three times for a win and a second, being well supported on debut. His dam Daly Charm has a Redwood yearling colt heading to the 2018 Ready to Run at Karaka, has a weanling filly by El Roca, while Daly Charm is pencilled in to visit Street Cry’s exciting young sire Telperion in 2018.
