Humanity [AUS] stamped himself as an exciting staying prospect with a dominate win at Ascot in Perth today. Stepping up to the mile for the first time in just his third start the big bay put pay to his rivals displaying the ability that his trainer Lindsey Smith has been excited about for some time. In a race with a muddling early pace, Humanity who was mid field and unable to settle, was sent to the front by experienced jockey Paul Harvey and once there and allowed to stride, showed great tenacity to fight off the challenges and win by over a length. Trainer Lindsey Smith has some lofty target for Humanity who he believes will get to the top grade in Western Australia. Humanity is by the proven sire Al Maher [AUS] out of the O’Reilly [NZ] mare Zumanity [NZ] who was second in the Gr.1 Queensland Oaks. Humanity was purchased by Boomer at the 2015 Inglis Melbourne Premier Yearling Sale from the draft of Rosemount Stud for $180,000 for a great group of owners.
