The ultra-consistent Tavisan is part of the Phoenix team in Australia. Owned in partnership, the gelding is a winner of two of his last three starts and is beginning to fulfil all the potential he showed as a three-year-old.
A winner on his Australian debut he later placed at Group Two level before again finding the prize money in the Caulfield Guineas Prelude. Following a gelding operating the son of Tavistock returned to the track as a four-year-old to win a 1000m race at Sandown. Undone by the draw, but still a close up third next time up he made amends in terrific style romping home from the front to win a Benchmark 90 1200m contest at Moonee Valley. He produced another tough front running effort to take the valuable Apache Cat Classic at Cranbourne to take his record to three wins in five starts.
