PROMISING three-year-old Havana Stash sounded a warning that he could be a Tasmanian Guineas contender following his impressive win in a strong class one handicap over 1200 metres at The TOTE Racing Centre in Launceston tonight.
The David and Scot Brunton-trained gelding settled third behind a slid speed set by Coastal Rose and Honey For Us.
When the leaders kicked turning for homer Havana Stash was eased three-wide to challenge by premier rider Brendon McCoull and while it took all but the last 50 metres to gain the better of Honey For Us, Havana Stash proved too strong at the business end of the race.
Havana Stash broke his maiden status in Hobart on October 6 and he followed up with a game second to the highly promising filly Iggimacool on a class one over 1400m in Launceston at his subsequent start.
