O’tauto Delivers Impressive 2yo Success for O’Lonhro

Greg Eurell trained O’tauto (O’lonhro x Taut) won his first start at Cranbourne today, despite being 4 wide at the turn O’tauto delivered a powerful late charge to take the race.

Bred at Larneuk and raced by Larneuk’s Neville Murdoch O’tauto is the son of Victoria’s Award Winning Stallion O’Lonhro out of a mare owned by Larneuk.

O’Lonhro has produced some quality horses over his career and still stands at only $5,500(inc GST).

There’s a very good reason why Lonhro has over a dozen sons standing at stud. They work! O’Lonhro is working too and little wonder. A cracking individual who is renowned for throwing them to type, O’Lonhro was unbeaten in his two starts as a 3YO before capping his career at four with a victory in the time honoured Group Two Chelmsford Stakes (emulating his sire and beating home Group One Doncaster Handicap winner, Triple Honour), along with a second in the Group Two Warwick Stakes.

It’s a pretty good family as well … mum, Mamzelle Pedrille, was a Group Two winner in Sydney and is up close and personal with both Group One winner Diamond Drille and, wait for it, I Am Invincible (32 stakes winners). In this industry, it’s not always about what you know, but who your stallion is related to!

Most importantly, O’Lonhro has gotten off to a good start at stud with his first few crops producing Mamzelle Tess, the winner of six and Group placed in May, stakes placed O’Lonera – also a 6-time winner with over half a million in the bank – O’Lonh Star (6 wins), Big Reel (6 wins), O’ So Hazy (5 wins). All up … nearly 70 winners of circa $4 million.

July has been a good month for O’Lonhro, during July he had 30 starters for 5 wins, 3 Seconds and 4 Thirds.
