TO EXCESS to strong in ortensia stakes on Saturday

TO EXCESS, a DUPORTH sired 4 year old gelding showed his true class on Saturday, beating a strong field in the Arrowfield Stud Ortensia Stakes at Scone.

The hotly contested race over the 1100 meters was the ideal first run for the horse, taking the lead at the 150 meters and winning by a comfortable 2.4 lengths.

Trained by Tracey Bartley, TO EXCESS was a sixty thousand dollar purchase at the Inglis Classic Sale. He has now won in excess of $240,000 dollars and shows the ability to win a lot more for his owners S W Summers & Mrs J M Summers, we wish all connections the best with his upcoming races.
