Lightly raced three-year-old gelding On Face Value (pictured) continued his good campaign with an impressive victory at Moonee Valley on Friday night.
After having three starts as a two-year-old, On Face Value returned from a spell as a gelding and recorded his maiden victory first-up at Stony Creek. After solid efforts in higher grades, he then found his right class and distance on Friday night and became a city winner.
On Face Value was stepping up to the 1600m for the first time in his career and he relished the rise in distance. Given a perfect ride from in form jockey Dwayne Dunn, On Face Value got off the fence at the right time and reeled in the leaders in the straight.
It was a great result for the stable as On Face Value was bred by Laming Racing, and his sire Face Value was trained by Laming Racing. He will now look to continue his good form at the 1600m and further over the coming weeks.
Congratulations to winning owner Jenny Laming who walked away with more than $50,000 in prize money after the Super Vobis bonuses. On Face Value now takes his career earnings to just under $70,000 in only seven starts.

Well done to everyone involved in the stable.
