The supremely talented son of Majestic Son had contested both the two and three year old Breeders Crown Finals however he galloped both times and produced an outstanding effort both times.
Last night at Melton though he did everything right and won the Group Two four year old Final with ease.
Leading from barrier one, Illawong Armstrong ran the field along and gave nothing else a chance. Sprinting home in 57.9, he won by 7.8 metres over his rival Eljaykay Phoenix.
This was his thirteenth win and takes his earnings to $157,068.
Illawong Armstrong is of course bred and raced by two of the nicest people in the sport Dr Martin and Kay Hartnett.
