Dorian Grey maintained Bluegables Farm’s 100 percent selling record with his family when he won at Te Aroha this afternoon. The son of Postponed made light work of an awkward gate to post his debut victory for trainers Graeme and Debbie Rogerson. The grey two-year-old is a half-brother to the winners Ma Bella Ami, Cannymac and Bast who were all sold by Bluegables. They are out of the Royal Academy mare Latestu, who is out of a half-sister to the Gr 1 Oakleigh Plate winner Khaptingly.
“On pedigree I said to Graeme we should have a look at him and we paid a bit more than we thought, but he was a nice type,” Debbie Rogerson said.
He was knocked down to the husband and wife team for $105,000 at the Ready To Run Sale and looks to have a bright future.
“We’ve been patient with him and we’ll see how he comes through this race,” Rogerson said.
“If the weather and the tracks are okay in three weeks or so he might have a run.
“He’s going to get up to a mile at least so we’ll get serious about him in some of the earlier spring races.”
