Well that was a very good win today from a horse who is still very much raw and will improve immensely with further racing. Ben Thompson gave him a gun ride , he tracked the fav everywhere he went, peeled out deep at the top of the straight and put them to the sword late. Ben said he is still not mentally there yet doing quite a bit wrong and its only race experience that is against him at the moment, the raw talent is there but he is still a big baby mentally !
Leon was thrilled with the win as he has quite a bit of time for Trumpy, but always mentions next time around, so we won’t get too carried away this prep , maybe another 3-4 starts and in the paddock for an assault later in the year! The old cliché one run at a time! Leon wants to space his runs and he won’t run now for 3 weeks.
