Cravache Dor headlined a feature double for Haras des Trotteurs stallion Orlando Vici at Melton on Friday night.
Cravache Dor gave the French stallion his first Australian-bred G1 winner.
She took out the $60,000 Need For Speed Prince 3yo colts/geldings Final, 1720m, for trainer Anton Golino and Yabby Dam Farms, which bred and race the gelding.
Boom 4yo Ollivici scored for trainer-driver Chris Lang in the G2 Tornado Valley Final, 2240m.
Cravache Dor was forced to race outside the leader before proving too tough and rate a career-best 1:56.1.
This makes her Orlando Vici’s fastest offspring of the 17 Australian-bred winners he has had from 21 starters.
All up Orlando Vici has had 20 individual winners on Australian tracks, including NZ-bred duo Ollivici and Adelle, which finished third to Ollivici on Friday night.
Ollivici has now won five races on end and is making a huge impression.
Lang is setting Ollivici for the Inter Dominion Trotting Championship in Victoria in November-December, but is also looking long term at an overseas campaign.
“The Inter Dominion is our number one goal the way things are planning out at present,” he said. “I still have dreams of going back to Sweden one day, so we need to win that Inter Dominion. It’s a big ask for a four-year-old, but that’s our main game.
“He’s very well, he’s got high speed – for where he’s at I’d rate him as good as I’ve ever trained basically,” Lang said.
Ollivici was bred by Kevin Chapman and purchased by Lang for $51,000 at New Zealand Bloodstock's first-ever national standardbred yearling sale in 2019.
