Third winner for Instinction
Mark Smith - Wednesday, 19 April 2017

Despite a pleasing fourth when making his career debut at Ipswich 12 days ago, the Malcolm Reynolds-trained Our Kingsman didn't have a friend in the world in a maiden on the same track on Wednesday but it did not stop the grey gelding ringing up number one at odds of $81.

After tracking the early speed, Ben Appo took the son of Instinction to the front 400 metres from home and he had enough in hand to defeat the fast-finishing Foxwedge filly by a half-neck with the favourite Amelia Jane (Real Saga) one and a quarter length back in third.

Our Kingsman becomes the third winner for Sun Stud's multiple stakes winner Instinction.

The grey son of Exceed And Excel is also the sire of the brilliant filly Paradis Imperial who has won six of her 8 starts with earnings of $200,000.

Not offered for sale as a yearling, Our Kingsman is the first foal of the unraced Magic Albert mare Albert's Command who hails from the family of STC Queen of the Turf Stakes winner Special Finish.

A half-brother to Group II winner Into the Mist, out of Group II winning dam, De Lago Mist (Encosta de Lago), Instinction stands for a fee of $5,500 at Sun Stud, Queensland.
