THIS IS A HORSE WE’VE ALWAYS TAGGED AS HAVING HUGE ABILITY. EVERY CAMPAIGN SO FAR TO DATE IN HIS SHORT CAREER THOUGH, HAS ENDED WITH THINGS GOING AMISS. HE’S BLED AND HAD BAD HOOF INFECTIONS. TRAINER ROB HEATHCOTE HAS HIM SPOT ON THIS CAMPAIGN THOUGH SO EXPECT TO SEE HIS TRUE COLOURS.

FIRST UP AT IPSWICH WE WERE REALLY KEEN ON HIM WHEN HE STARTED 18-1 , BUT WE JUST THOUGHT HE’D STRUCK A HOT CLASS 3 METRO RACE AND HE MIGHT JUST NEED THE RUN. THE FACT HE WON AND IN SUCH CONVINCING FASHION MADE US REALISE HE’S GOING GREAT GUNS AND EVEN BETTER THAN WE HAD ANTICIPATED. AS HE’D ALWAYS RUN WELL FIRST UP PREVIOUSLY BUT HAD NEVER WON AND ALWAYS IMPROVES GOING INTO HIS 2ND UP RUN.

HE’S STRCUK A VERY COMPETITIVE RACE HERE AND DRAWS 14. BUT HE LOVES THE SUNSHINE COAST TRACK WHERE HE’S WON BEFORE AND HE LOVES WET TRACKS SO THAT POSES NO CONCERN. BROOKE STOWER STAYS ON AND CLAIMS 2 WHICH SEES HIM VERY WELL IN AT THE WEIGHTS. HE’LL ROLL FORWARD FROM THE ALLEY AND BEING WIDE AT THE SUNSHINE COAST WHEN IT WET IS OFTEN THE PLACE TO BE SO THE BARRIER ISN’T MUCH CONCERN. 

HE’S A HORSE GOING PLACES SO EXPECT HIM TO TAKE THE NEXT STEP HERE TOWARD SATURDAY GRADE AND BE WINNING AT A NICE PRICE!

 

FORTINI’S 1ST UP VICTORY @ IPSWICH
