Carolina Reaper showed his true form in winning the third two year old race of the season. He raced like a real professional. When the run came in the straight he showed no hesitation in taking it and then won in convincing fashion. It was a great ride by Craig Staples who showed good initiative when giving up the lead and got towed into the race at the right time. So three cheers for Craig and many thanks to him for his untiring work in helping educate our young horses. Thank you also to my staff for their continued dedication and hard work. I’d also like to say a special thank you to Martin Allan who has broken in our youngsters over the last few years.
