This horse may not amount to anything, but Holy Killing Cane Toads Is Necessary Batman, this was some sort of a run.
The horse is named TALES OF THE HEART (Show A Heart-Tail Of A Diva).
And the race is a maiden at Dalby. He opened at $1.55, blew to start at $1.90, jumped on terms with the field, then didn’t go for 25m before deciding he would chase.
In four starts with trainer Robert Heathcote he didn’t run a place, but to be fair, the races he ran in were tougher.
Now with Toowoomba training duo, Tony & Maddy Sears, he seems to be able to run – fast.
He broke the class record with this effort.
Now, he beat nothing and no-one really expects him to scale any heights…..but what a run.
Jockey Gemma Steele would have given up on him when he refused to go in the early moments of the race, then, when she thought, ‘bugger the silver I’m going for gold’ she copped a check in the straight as well.
Astonishing is all I can say.
