Ryley Major made the most of a good draw to score an all the way win in the Group Three Tasmanian Derby last night at Hobart.
Beginning swiftly from the pole, the son of Art Major was able to control the tempo of the race before sprinting home in 57.8 to win over a fast finishing El Major (Art Major).
Bred and owned by Rohan and Katrina Hillier, Ryley Major is out of their former star mare Shez Ryleymak 1:56.2 - $270,688.
Shez Ryleymak was a dual Group One winner with victories in the Vicbred 2yo Final and the Tasmanian Oaks.
For Ryley Major this was his sixth win from ten starts and takes his lifetimes earnings to $36,58
