Arden’s Concord again

ARDEN’S CONCORD provided sire Panspacificflight with his fourth win of the new season when he won over 2400 metres at Winton on 06 September.

Junior driver Rory McIlwrick gave the four-year-old gelding a perfect run in the one-one sit and he powered away to win by two lengths in 3:04.5 in wintry conditions on an easy track. The leaders ran their last half in 59.5 with the final quarter in 29.5.

This was Arden’s Concord’s second win from just five starts and a penalty-free one so he’ll be hard to beat wherever he lines up next.

We’ve already pointed out how strongly Panspacificflight featured in last season’s sires statistics. Well, click on the link below and see how he’s going at this early stage of the new season. Note that his four wins have come from just 71 eligible foals (including his two-year-old crop) whereas all the stallions above him on the premiership have at least three times as many foals.
