Lincoln Falls dazzles on debut

The Lisa Latta-trained three-year-old Lincoln Falls looks to have a bright future after an impressive debut performance when successful at Woodville on Friday.
Ridden by Johnathan Parkes, the colt by Dundeel came from back and wide in the Braeside Farm 5 1⁄2 f to prove too strong for his rivals.
Lincoln Falls had impressed in two trials wins heading into Friday’s maiden victory and holds a nomination for the Gr.1 Al Basti Equiworld Dubai New Zealand 2000 Guineas (1600m) in November.
“He’s got a tonne of improvement in him,” Latta said. “We’ve never really had to let his head go on the track or at the trials, so it is always a bit of a worry heading into raceday.
“Johnathan did the right thing going back, and I have to admit I was a little bit worried at the 3 f how relaxed he was, but he will learn a lot from that and really go ahead.
“He holds a nomination for the 2000 Guineas, but we will just take him along lightly at the moment. There is a special conditions maiden at Hastings on the last day of their carnival and something like that might be a soft option for him.”
A graduate of the New Zealand Bloodstock Ready To Run Sale, Lincoln Falls was sold by JK Farm on behalf of Nearco Stud for $200,000 to Lincoln Farms Bloodstock.
Lincoln Falls has now shortened with TAB bookmakers to a $12 second-favourite for the Gr.1 Al Basti Equiworld New Zealand 2000 Guineas (1600m) behind Sword of Osman.
