The son of Sportswriter showed really good gate speed by the first bend and from there he was never headed.

After recording a first half of 61.5, Lumineer sprinted home in 55.3 to win comfortably by a length in 1:56.

Bred by Pepper Tree Farm Breeding & Racing Unit Trust, this was his eighth win from eight starts for the Ange McDowell trained pacer.

He will look to substantially add to his earnings of $204,770 when he attempts to the Group 1 Victoria Derby Final this Saturday at Melton.

He will be joined in the Final by the Alabar sired Colt Thirty One (Mach Three), The Devils Own (Art Major), The Brooklyn Brawler (Art Major), Major Times (Art Major) and Tam Major (Art Major).
