Per Incanto's Lost and Running Stays Perfect

Mark Smith - Thursday March 25

Purchased for just $40,000 at the 2018 Inglis Premier Yearling Sale, Lost And Running is proving to be a little star for the John O'Shea stable, as he ran his unbeaten sequence to four with a facile win over 1100m on the Kensington track on Thursday.

Ridden by James McDonald, the 4yo son of Per Incanto (USA) led most of the way to win by a widening three and a half lengths. He defeated the talented I Am Invincible mare Lucicello, with the All Too Hard mare Switched a further three-quarter of a length back in third.

There was no disguising the ability of Lost And Running. When he made his debut at Scone in May last year, he was sent off an odds-on favourite. He justified those odds by winning by four and a half lengths.  

Lost And Running has been in the red in all four starts to date. A little over a fortnight from his career debut, Lost And Running trotted up by three and a quarter lengths over the same track and distance as his latest success.

It has not been all smooth sailing. Per Incanto's son underwent knee surgery following his second win and was not seen again for ten months.

Lost And Running took up where he left off, defeating Ocean Emperor (Written Tycoon) by one and a half lengths at Warwick Farm.

Bred in New Zealand by bred by JML Bloodstock, Lost And Running was consigned by Blandford Lodge to the Inglis Premier Yearling Sale.

His dam Dreamlife (Danroad) did not bother the scorers in three career starts. However, she is a sister to the Group III winner Kiss Me Ketut and a half-sister to Listed stakes-winners Fast Love (Fastnet Rock) and A Chance To Dream (Volksraad).

Tartan Meadow Bloodstock purchased a full-brother to Lost And Running for $210,000 at Karaka last year.
