Talented home-bred three-year-old STAMPE made it a perfect start to the new racing season with an impressive victory at Doomben on Saturday.

Coming off a last-start win at the Gold Coast, the son of Whittington was stepping up to the 1350m for the first time but the extra distance proved no issue as he kicked clear under the urgings of in-form hoop Sean Cormack to secure his first Metropolitan victory.

It was a memorable day for owners Phil Gutzke and Malcolm Schumacher who bred and raised STAMPE as a yearling.
