countLIGHTLY-RACED stayer Count Romano completed back-to-back victories at the Gold Coast this afternoon when he revelled in the slow conditions to post another comfortable win.
Bred by his owner Domenico Festa, Count Romano has had a bit of a 'stop-start' career due to maturity and injury.
The six-year-old son Latarmiss did not race until he was four and last year had to have a lengthy break to have bone chips removed.
But he has put it all together this preparation, winning at his fourth run back from his lengthy spell at the Gold Coast on October 27 and again today.
"It's great to win two in a row with him after the previous troubles we've had,'' said Festa.
"The soft track today was no concern as he's handled the conditions well enough before. And I'm sure he'll get even further than the 1800m and we may look for a race in town for him next and see how he handles that.''
Ridden again today by 3kg-claiming apprentice Michael McKenzie, Count Romana ($4) always looked to be travelling like a winner in the RBC Business Solutions Class 3 Plate (1800m).
He powered to the lead on straightening and hit the line strongly to score by 3-1/2 lengths from Zenawomann ($9) with a short-head to Tango King ($2.50 fav) in third.
Count Romano has now won four of his 20 starts.
