12/06/02 Another Flemington Double for Encosta
Australia's hottest sire, Encosta de Lago, has done it again!

Fresh from a sizzling May around Australia, the young sire sensation was represented by another metropolitan double, this time at Melbourne headquarters, Flemington.

Yesterday was a marevellous Monday for Encosta de Lago and weren't the trainers talking up Victoria's most popular stallion.

"He's incredible Encosta de Lago," Aquanita trainer Robert Smerdon said after his Encosta filly Maicostus scored an impressive win.

"They race and they win. He's a top value sire and it's great to have him here in Victoria," Smerdon added.

"Maicostus is the only Encosta de Lago I have in training, but I certainly wouldn't mind a few more. She's so professional and there's still more improvement in her," Smerdon said of his filly who'd won her third race from just eight starts.

The Hughes family, based at Flemington, unearthed one of Encosta de Lago's star juveniles this season last year in the shape of Delago Brom. Now they've done it again!

The latest star of the Tommy Hughes Jnr stable is the well bred gelding Titanic Jack. Titanic Jack is unbeaten from two starts.

"He's a real nice horse," Hughes Jnr said after his effortless four and three quarter length win.

Hughes says the gelding would have a run at Moonee Valley in a fornight in what he is tipping is a race to provide "money for jam."

With leading trainers scrambling for superlatives to describe their Encosta de Lago's, there's little wonder the demand for the son of Fairy King is sky high.

A Group One winner on the track Encosta de Lago is again standing the 2002 season at Victoria's Blue Gum Farm.
