Impressive debutante Family Portrait provided Coolmore stallion Excellent Art his first winner on Australian soil in the Galvanising Plate (1000m) at Morphettville today.

The filly was purchased by trainer Mick Huxtable at the $60,000 Melbourne Premier Yearling Sale in March and looks to have more wins install.

Excellent Art has had winners in Europe and is one of the cheaper shuttle sires at Coolmore standing for $10,000.

He won the Group 1 St. James’s Palace Stakes (1600m) at Royal Ascot and is from the same family of successful stallions Chief’s Crown and Grand Lodge.

Jockey Simon Price settled Family Portrait last in early running.

The Mark Kavanagh-trained odds-on favourite Indubious lead and set a steady speed.

The well fancied Daytona Grey ran off the track at the home turn.

At that point, Family Portrait, physically bigger than her opponents, cruised into fourth.

Half way up the straight Indubious was beaten and Price gained a split between it and Heart N Spirit who settled second and fought on well until the final 100m.

Love Of Liberty (second) and Monica Kate (third) both ran on well to fill the placings but never threatened the winner.

Family Portrait is the fifth foal of dam the Listed-placed Amen Ruby (by Rubiton) and is her third winner.

Amen Ruby’s other two winners are Angel Of Hope and Zerogem.

Amen Ruby’s dam Golden Prayer was a Group 2 winner of the S A Breeders Stakes and produced speedy sprinter Pray In Vain among others.
