Hard Day At The Office
Jan 02, 2012
On New Years Eve at Orange Brian had three runners, with what was hopeful of being a good day turned into a hard day at the office. The first runner Hawky found himself too far back in a slowly run race that suited horses near the the front. The race turned into a sprint home leaving Hawky with no chance of making any ground due to the slow tempo. Gentle then had King Of Atlantis who was expected to run well if not win and he managed to get his tongue over the bit and choked down when he was making good ground from the back of the field which then put him out of play. The last race found Kirra Lyn up outside the leader in a fast run 1000m race, it suited horses coming from the back of the field, although she was up sharing the lead Kirra Lyn managed to hold on to be only beaten 2.2 lengths from the winner in class record time, this was a very encouraging first start for the Gentle stable.
