Rangeview stallion -GALAH now has his first 2 yr old winner of this current 2018/19 season and it’s still pretty early in the racing year!
HIGH RANGE a lovely gelding out of SECRET DIVA won really well yesterday at ASCOT Sat April 13th.
Ridden by Ryan Hill HIGH RANGE jumped very smartly out of the gates and led and never stopped leading! Was challenged with 100m to go by the favourite but was almost going away from the filly on the line, to win by 0.7l in a time of 59.61 and last 600 in 34.15 – impressive considering he was the horse that led.

This race certainly showed HIGH RANGE could sustain his speed. It’s not always the case that the winner has the fastest last 600m but with HIGH RANGE he did as there was 3.6l to third.
By GALAH out of SECRET DIVA this makes this horse very much a Rangeview Stud “special” with SECRET DIVA a two times winner by Rangeview’s SO SECRET and out of OUTWARD DISPLAY who has a good produce record for Rangeview.
GALAH has as his sire, the most famous and very recently deceased REDOUTE’S CHOICE.
And the other sweetener, if you didn’t realise how good the WESTSPEED Platinum Scheme was, the race was $70,000 a standard two year old race on a Saturday where the winner would usually take home $41,300- BUT with bonus’, HIGH RANGE has already earned his owners $88,100 from one win- Not bad eh?
Congratulations to Vern Brockman trainer and managing part owner and all other owners, R B Gray, Mrs J M Gray, J A Mouritz, P J Dinnison, M S Cole, M J Wilson, G V Egerton-Warburton & M S Doherty.
Have a look at HIGH RANGE at the Rangeview yearling Parade last year – he sold for $40,000 last year at the Magic Millions Sale knocked down to Vern Brockman.
