The Brian and Shane Anderton-trained Raise You Five cleared maiden company at Wingatui on Friday when taking out the Lexus Melbourne Cup Tour 31st August (1600m).
The full-brother to stakes winner Raise You Ten settled towards the rear of the field after jumping away slowly from barrier seven.
Jockey Jacob Lowry was able to pick an economical path through the field to present Raise You Five at the head of the field at the turn of the straight and the gelding was able to kick clear of his rivals to win by 3-1/2 lengths over Mah Girl, with Acre a further half-length back in third.
“They went quite quick up front which was good and set it up for him,” Shane Anderton said.
“He was travelling quite good on the corner. It was a good result.”
