#Ollie Tough Boy (3G Tough Speed x Royal Beluga) broke through for a well-deserved win in the 3YO Maiden over the 1120m
Urged forward by apprentice Chris Graham on jumping, he was able to sit outside the leader Heavenly Light and enjoyed a nice run in transit. He was left a little flat footed entering the home straight, but the gelding was able to continue to build to score tough win.
The race also carried a $20,000 #TASBRED bonus and this was a great result for connections as #Ollie had been placed 2nd on two occasions in these #Tasbred races.
Congratulations to connections Mr T J Edwards, Mr R M Webb, Mr J W Quill
#Brian Ocean Essence (NZ) (4G Ocean Park x Our Essence) was very impressive winning a Class 3 comfortably over 1620m. The gelding was given a lovely ride by Anthony Darmanin who took full advantage of the inside gate. After jumping well and not wanting to get into a battle for the lead, Anthony allowed the horse racing to the outside to cross and the crossed back over its heels to take the position outside the leader. When the tempo increased at the 600m Ocean Essence was able to build momentum and run away over the concluding stages to win by 2.5 lengths.
