Strong Start to March for Stryker
Tara Madgwick - Wednesday, 8 March 2017
Three Bridges Thoroughbreds foundation sire Stryker continued his strong start to the month of March when posting his fifth winner in eight days when Greviste cast off maiden status at Ballarat on Wednesday.

Greviste as a yearlingResuming from a spell, the Mitchell Freedman trained three year-old gelding fought hard to the line to win by a short neck in the 1200 metre maiden with four lengths back to the third horse.

It was his first win in three starts following two inconclusive fifth placings in his first preparation last year.

A $36,000 Inglis Premier Session II purchase for Mitchell Freedman from the Three Bridges draft, Greviste is the third winner for Chartilla, a half-sister to stakes-winner Galvanized, the dam of star Tasmanian stakes-winning filly Hot Dipped.

A proven source of winners and stakes-winners as the sire Group I New Zealand Derby winner Rangipo, Stryker has had yearlings sell for up to $140,000 this year.
