28/06/02 Theatre's Half Brother Set for City Win
0628theatre.jpg (17349 bytes)The half brother to the former Group winning star galloper Theatre is primed to win his first metropolitan race at Flemington tomorrow.

Rescato, a member of the Caulfield based Graham Woolston stable, is hoping to follow in his big brother's footsteps by winning at Flemington.

"I think he's a pretty smart horse," Woolston said of Rescato today. "He must be a really good each way chance at odds tomorrow."

A flashy chestnut gelding with four white socks, Rescato was a back to back winner on the provincial circuit in Victoria before finishing unplaced at Flemington on June 10.

"You can basically forget about his run last start at Flemington. He had a terrible wide barrier and he was right there before being basically nursed to the line by his rider," Woolston added.

Andrew Findlay, one of Melbourne's most underrated and in form riders, will be in the saddle tomorrow.

"He (Findlay) is a very good jockey," Woolston said. "He's been riding in great style and he likes this fellow. Andrew's been riding him in his track work and has been pleased with how he's been going."

During a glamourous career on the track Theatre, a son of Roi Danzig, proved he was well above average. A multiple stakes winner at three, his best win came in the Group Two Ascot Vale Stakes at Flemington.

Both Theatre and Rescato are two of the named foals from the Raise a Cup mare Raise a Ransom.

Since Rescato was born the mare has only produced one named foal, a two-year-old by Ashkalani. He's been named Great Star and has been sent to Hong Kong.

The mare presently has a rising yearling by the ill-fated Snippets, and sadly for her owners last season she missed to the American Horse of the Year and Champion Juvenile Favorite Trick.
