Patience Rewarded

Jan 09, 2017

It was a deserved break through for Zero Patience at Mornington on Sunday, the Danzero three-year-old not having had much luck in his lead up runs.

But this time everything went right for her, Luke Nolen having her in a lovely position mid-field along the rails - and she was always travelling well.

Held up briefly straightening, Zero Patience soon got the split and she was keen to take it, wearing down the leaders and looking to have plenty in hand saluting by 3/4 length.

"She had been racing well without luck and it was nice to see things go her way," Robbie said.

"She has great speed and determination and just needed the breaks - is was a very well deserved win."

Racing in the red and white colours of her breeders Rosemont Stud, Zero Patience hails from the final crop of her Golden Slipper winning sire.

Danzero has been a real favourite for the stable, siring our durable stakes winners Danzylum and Count To Zero who between them won 22 races and over $1.1 million.

Purchased for just $24,000 by Robbie with Peter Ford at the 2015 Inglis VOBIS Gold Yearling Sale, Zero Patience is one of only four foals produced by the Carnegie mare Patience Well who sadly died young.

She hails from one of Australia's most prolific black type families, that of Catnipped, Brawny Spirit, Hit The Roof, Joker's Wild, Reward For Effort, Turffontein, Full At Last, Consular, Life's A Bounty, Miss Prospect, Overreach, Miss Mossman, Ivory's Irish, Alynda, Penny Gem, Fast 'N' Famous, Precious Gem, Apercu, Big Barron and Able Friend.
