Storm Gust finds niche on heavy track

Jul 04, 2016

STORM GUST broke his maiden status on a rain-affected track at the Luxbet Racing Centre in Launceston yesterday which trainer Adam Trinder is hoping paves the way for the gelding to make his way through the classes.

Storm Gust had promised to win at four of his six previous starts but had failed to deliver. This time he showed the grit his trainer knew he owned to register his first win from seven starts.

He was ridden by Ryan Plumb who replaced Brendon McCoull who had to concede the meeting due to illness. Plumb had the Ladoni gelding settled worse than midfield and he was still beyond midfield when they straightened for the run home.

Vivre Star kicked three lengths clear turning for home and was being hailed the winner but he was unable to withstand the swoopers that included Storm Gust and the well-backed Rialto Jess ($26 into $10).

Under strong riding Storm Gust edged out Rialto Jess right on the line with the winner pricking his ears almost as soon as he hit the front in the shadows of the post.

“Today’s race was a bit of a test to see if he could handle the conditions and it is obvious he was right at home,” Trinder said.

“We’ll take the win and I’m sure now that we have discovered the horse can handle the heavy tracks we can progress.”
