06/02/02 Leica Guv Seals Sydney Trip with Ellerslie Win
0203bobscarborough.jpg (8183 bytes)Recent Group One New Zealand Derby winner Leica Guv has shown he is on track for the Sydney Autumn Feature Races for three-year-olds after an emphatic win in New Zealand today.

The Jeff McVean trained galloper, who was bred and is owned by Victoria's Bob Scarborough, was ridden by that man again - Scotty Seamer.

Leica Guv, a son of New Zealand based stallion Deputy Governor, jumped the hot favourite and then duly won today's KPMG Legal Double a $20,000 race for three-year-olds.

In the run to the line Leica Guv hardly got out of first gear, cruising home to win by 3 3/4 lengths over Ma Gloire, the Peter Johnson mount. Desert Bay (Michelle Wenn) was a long head away in third place.

Seamer will no doubt be hoping his loyalty to the youngster will lead to similar rewards after the efforts of Ethereal during the Melbourne Spring Carnival. Seamer often flew over the Tasman to partner the promising mare before she began her triumphant Australian Cups campaign.

Leica Guv now has six wins from just nine starts. He is sure to prove more than competitive when he heads to Sydney.

It has been a big few days for Bob Scaroborough. While he continues to prepare a strong draft for this weekend's Melbourne Premier Sale, he found time to cheer home Lontano to his listed race win in the Kensington Stakes at Flemington on Sunday.

PICS - Quentin Lang.
