30/07/02 HOY: Lonhro Romps Home in 3YO Award
r6lonhro.jpg (14872 bytes)Lonhro has downed a quality field with relative ease to be crowned the Champion Three-Year-Old at tonight's Australia's Racing Champions Racehorse of the Year.

The John Hawkes trained colt, who is resuming in Sydney on Saturday, polled over 70 percent of the vote.

The last stride Australian Derby winner Don Eduardo was next best with 19 votes, just ahead of the dual Group One winner Carnegie Express.

r6lonhro2.jpg (12423 bytes)A son of the former champion galloper Octagonal, Lonhro was the only contender in any division of the awards to have been unbeaten during the season.

Between his win in the Warwick Stakes in August and his Hobartville Stakes in February, Lonhro had won seven from seven and stakes of over one and a quarter million dollars.

He is set to resume with Sydney's glamour three-year-old filly Ha Ha in Saturday's Group Three Missile Stakes in Sydney. Darren Beadman will ride the rising four-year-old.

Interestingly no female horse polled votes in this award with the judges overlooking the likes of Magical Miss and Ha Ha.


LONHRO 112 (70.44%)
Don Eduardo (NZ) 19 (11.95%)
Carnegie Express 16 (10.06%)
Viscount 6 (3.77%)
Mistegic 4 (2.52%)
Dash for Cash 2 (1.26%)
