A regally-bred son of Galileo (Sadler’s Wells – Urban Sea, by Miswaki) has provided young Victorian trainer Sam Pritchard-Gordon with his first winner with his first runner at Sunday’s Benalla meeting.
Allthekingshorses (Galileo – Slight Chance, by Centaine) posted a comfortable three-quarter of a length success in the Blooms On Bridge Maiden Plate (1400m) to provide Pritchard-Gordon with the perfect start to his training career.
Pritchard-Gordon migrated to Australia in 2005, following his work with some of the UK’s best trainers at Newmarket with stints with Australian training stars Gai Waterhouse and Lee Freedman as racing manager.
“That was a big thrill,” Pritchard-Gordon said. “There is no greater thrill than training your own horse to win a race.”
Allthekingshorses is a son of the multiple Group 1 winner Slight Chance (Centaine – Lady Aloof, by Sir Godfrey), making the former Tim Martin-trained four-year-old a half-brother to Group 3 winner Salgado (Danewin – Slight Chance, by Centaine) and Kitchwin Hills sire Dane Shadow (Danehill – Slight Chance, by Centaine).
