Persistent Threat remained unbeaten when winning the $100,000 WA Sales Classic at Gloucester Park last night.

Trained by Bunbury's Josh Graham, the  two-year-old brown gelding is remarkably the only winner to date sired by Advance Attack, who is a full-brother to racing and siring sensation Courage Under Fire.

Advance Attack, who was originally trained by Mark Purdon, was a brilliant early two-year-old winning his first eight starts and 10 of 16 in New Zealand.

He was then sold to Australia where he won a further 18 races from 73 starts for stakes of $406,094.

Persistent Threat, who looks to have inherited all of his family’s early two-year-old ability, showed a dazzling turn of foot when launched to the front by driver Thomas Buchanan with a lap to go before sprinting away to win easily by 4.7 metres over Captain Oaks.

He has now all four of his race day appearances and looks set for a big future.

La Mia Juliette (Jet Laag), who also remains unbeaten, was successful in the $100,000 fillies final for trainer-driver Peter Tilbrook, while Alta Christiano was also an impressive winner on the card.
