AGE OF CHIVALRY WINS TWO IN A ROW AT CAULFIED

August 31, 2019

Age of Chivalry (NZ) (He’s Remarkable) delivered a brave front running performance at Caulfield on Saturday notching up two wins from as many starts on the Melbourne track. The Mathew Ellerton and Simon Zahra-trained four-year-old was backing up from his last-start win a fortnight ago and had undergone an interrupted preparation due to an injury after being kicked by the interview pony after his last success. “He hasn’t had a plain-sailing fortnight coming into today either courtesy of the pony here two weeks ago, the bloody thing kicked him on the way back,” Ellerton said. “He’s missed a bit of work so hopefully we can have plain-sailing into a better race sometime soon. “It was probably on a day when leaders found it a little difficult with the wind, it’s picked back up again and we were certainly a big mindful of that before the race. “His style is his style and Damian rode him well. “He was here to get his rating up and he beat some well-qualified horses, he did it from the front with the wind and I’m sure he has a better win in store for him.” Age of Chivalry was initially sold as a yearling through Mapperley Stud’s 2017 New Zealand Bloodstock Festival draft. He returned as a Ready To Run Age of Chivalry scores back-to-back wins (Bruno Cannatelli) two-year-old later that year and was knocked down to Henry Plumptre for $50,000. “Simon was under bidder on him at the Ready To Runs and he just went and saw Henry and threw his name in the hat,” Ellerton said. “We were lucky enough to be sent the horse on Henry’s recommendation with his partners.” Age of Chivalry has now had nine starts for four wins and three placings and over A$254,000 in stakes earnings.
