Bold running win for VALIANT SPIRIT in Group 2 Heritage Finance Caulfield Autumn Classic

A bold run by VALIANT SPIRIT in the G2 Autumn Stakes at Caulfield on Saturday showed the class from the 3yr old gelding by DUPORTH.

Leading the entire trip from the gates the gelding settled into his pace and ended up winning by a convincing margin of 1 and 3/4 lengths over $3 favourite Astoria.

The first stakes win for both horse and trainer Daniel Williams, the colt will likely be aimed for the Australian Derby in the autumn.

 A very exciting horse with a lot of promise, defiantly one for the black books
