They jumped out of the trees to back this newcomer CEASEFORE (Panzer Division – Amandine) at Tamworth this afternoon, and walked away with the lot.
He trounced his rivals winning by 7 lengths and looking like he could have gone another lap.
“There was just so much power every step of the way,” said his rider Aaron Bullock.
“I could have asked him to go at any stage and he was ready to just explode away. As he crossed the line I said to myself, howe could is this? He. Is very exciting.”
Ceasefire, trained at Scone by Paul Messara sat behind the tearaway leader Jekyll until they turned. His rider Jeff Oenza electing to head to the middle of the track while Bullock cut the corner and went yup along the rails.
And the moment he asked him to go he went whoosh.
“I have to ride 1000 horses at trials in the bush before I find something like this bloke.
“He just keeps improving too. He might be very special and the boys who own him are going to have a lot of fun with him.”
Ceasefire is only a 3YO and Messara was v very happy on many levels about the win.
“I trained his father and my grand father bred the mother so it was a touching win for us all.”
Ceasefire, who along with winning also proved he can handle the mud, will now go to town for better races.
And he can win there too.
