He’s still a long way from living up to his name, but the Hallowed Crown two-year-old Rule The World has comfortably dominated his opposition in his first two racetrack appearances.
Rule The World made it two-from-two with his victory in Saturday’s Australian Turf Club Handicap at Randwick, adding to the promising start to his young sire’s stud career.
Rule The World was already one of five winners in Australia, Singapore and the UK from the first crops of Hallowed Crown, a son of Street Sense who won six of his nine starts and was twice a winner at G1 level.
Taken straight to the front by jockey Tim Clark, Rule The World had control of the race throughout and comfortably survived the late challenge of runner-up Betcha Flying.
Trainer Adrian Bott said the stable had a good opinion of Rule The World and would now give him a break before beginning a spring preparation.
"There's a lot of upside with him going forward," Bott said.
"He's very professional, very laid back and very tractable.
"He was able to use his tactical speed, control the race from there and he quickened at the right time and he fought it out toughly.
"We wanted to come here today just to give him that little bit more experience and get his prize money rating up for some of the better races in the spring.”
Hallowed Crown’s winners include the UK winner Allhallowtide and Big Hearted who has won each of his two starts in Singapore.
