LE GRANGE IS KING OF THE KIDS - by luke middlebrook iRACE Media
Talented young trainer Ricardo Le Grange has quickly established himself as the “King Of The Kids” by saddling up three of the four Singapore Golden Horseshoe series winners.
Last Sunday, Argentinean-bred STREETWISE confirmed his place in the $325,00 Group 2 Aushorse Golden Horseshoe by claiming the fourth leg of the series, the Inglis Ready2race Stakes.
Joining him will be undefeated stablemate PENNYWISE, who claimed the first two legs of the juvenile series – both two-year-olds are by Pure Prize, the same sire as recently retired QUECHUA.
Le Grange, who finished second on the trainer’s championship last season behind Mark Walker, endured a slower start than expected to the 2018 season, courtesy of a run of 34 second places.
However, a mid-season surge has seen him move into the top 10 on 21 wins and substantially close the gap on the leading pack to only 10 wins.
