Grey Emience Powers To Wyong Win

Having his fourth start, three-year-old gelding Grey Eminence (NZ) produced a quality staying performance on Tuesday at Wyong with Tye Angland in the saddle to record an impressive maiden win.

When the barriers crashed open, Angland allowed the grey to settle in a mid-field position with Whitney’s Star taking the lead and ensuring that the field started to spread out with a solid tempo.

With 600m to go, the field started to bunch up, and Angland urged Grey Eminence out wide to make his run where he surged to the lead to make the race a true staying contest.

Hitting the lead with 100m to run, Grey Eminence charged away to score comfortably by over two and a half-lengths for owners Aston Bloodstock, Mrs R J Mula, D & M Payne Racing, Mr W A Wilkins, Morley Racing, Mrs E M Morley, Mr D W W Morley and Mr P J Rizk.

Purchased from the draft of Twin Palms Stud at the Magic Millions Yearling Sale for $40,000, Grey Eminence is a New Zealand-bred son of multiple Group 1 winner Reliable Man.
