Sidstrepo, a three-year-old gelding by Restrepo, and one of his first crop, won his second race at Northam (WA) on Tuesday (November 24).

The gelding led from the half-way point and was never again headed.

The mile rate was 2:01.4 for 2190 metres.

He clocked a sizzling 56.6 seconds for the closing half.

Bred by Ian and Judi Slater, Sidstrepo is out of Graces Beach (by Beach Towel), who has left five winners – four in 2:00 – from five foals of racing age.

Restrepo has sired three winners from an initial crop of nine foals.
