A lowly stewards trial set tongues wagging at Richmond on Friday night, with unraced maiden Lochinvar Flash unofficially breaking the 330m track record, posting a mind-boggling 18.35.

A son of top sire Dyna Double One, whose stocks continue to rise by the week, Lochinvar Flash was lining up for trainer Anne Kada and owner Tony Wiseman after the pair acquired the untapped sprinter following a narrow third in a performance trial at Maitland back in March.

And needing to stewards trial before being able to performance trial, as he hadn’t faced the starter for six months, the June 2016’ whelp turned in a remarkable performance for an unraced galloper, eclipsing the 18.37 time-standard set by Rockin’ Bingo back in February 2016.

All things being equal, Lochinvar Flash returns to Richmond this Friday to contest a 400m performance trial, with all eyes sure to be on his racetrack debut in the coming weeks.

The upward rise by Dyna Double One in the sires’ ranks continues to surge, his 18.4% winning strike-rate sitting only second to Fernando Bale, boasting a strike-rate of just over 20%.
