G1-performed Reset four-year-old Disposition will back-up next Saturday in the G1 Emirates Stakes after winning the G3 Guvera Stakes over 1400m at Flemington on Derby day, October 31.
After easing back towards the rear of the field after jumping from a wide barrier, jockey Damien Oliver stuck to the rails turning for home and was rewarded with a saloon passage. Disposition drove to the lead at the 200m mark and held off the late challenge of San Diego (Exceed And Excel) to score a determined win.
A homebred for Bob Peters, Disposition is out of the Testa Rossa mare Test Case, a daughter of G1-winning mare Spectrum.
Disposition is one of 30 Stakes winners for his sire Reset whose best progeny include multiple G1 winner Fawkner, Cox Plate heroine Pinker Pinker, VRC Oaks winner Set Square and Rebel Raider, who won the VRC Derby on this day in 2008.
Reset is standing at Northwood Park at a fee of $16,500 inc. GST.
