One of  Queensland’s real stalwart stallions, Falvelon, registered his  8th stakes winner on Saturday when his very promising 4YO  Someday was victorious for trainer Kelso Wood in the $175,000 Listed  Glasshouse Handicap at the Sunshine Coast.

It was the  gelding’s third attempt at black type success after registering two  unlucky placings at his last two outings.

Ridden  perfectly by high profile jockey Michael Cahill, Someday settled three  wide and third last in the run but quickly rounded them up in the straight to  deliver a very convincing 3.25 length winning margin.

“Once he got  onto some better footing about the 600m mark and started to travel I was always  confident he was going to win,” Cahill said not long after dismounting. “He put  paid to them very quickly and no horse has sprinted away from them like that on  this track today – which adds even more merit to his win.

“He is a horse  going places and he gave me a terrific feel!”

Trainer Kelso  Woods agrees and, in fact, intends to do just what Cahill has suggested by  taking him south and aiming at spring carnival riches.

“I already  have Sizzling and Real Surreal (by Real Saga) heading to Sydney  and Melbourne for the spring and this guy can now join them,” Wood said. “I am  sure he is capable of winning a really good race and I rate him very unlucky not  to be undefeated since I have had him (has won or placed in 12 of his 14 career  starts).

“He has been a  victim of bad luck and bad rides but his class has never been in  question.

“He will now  have a short let-up and I am sure he will be competitive in everything we set  him for. He always is!”

Yesterday’s  victory saw Falvelon leap inside the Top 50 sires in Australia and  took his progeny’s total winning prizemoney to well over  $18million.

And standing  at just $9,000 plus GST in 2013, Falvelon must surely appeal as one of  the most attractive options available to breeders this  season.
