Super win today by WRITTEN TYCOON flyer, Trump, who scored over 1110m at Doomben.
Formerly with David Payne at Randwick for his first two starts (showing plenty of nip in the Breeders’ Plate-LR on debut), Trump was having his first outing for Robert Heathcote and showed he not only has ability, but tenacity too, fighting back to score after it look as if the leader might deny him a deserved win.
From the Kiwi mare Queenie – a close relation of the Doomben 10,000-G1 winner Flitter – Trump was bred by Aston Bloostock in NSW and is owned in partnership by Iskander Bloodstock and Eliza Park’s Lee Fleming.
The trainer was full of praise for the win, saying: “As I have suspected since Trump arrived at the stables, he is a talented racehorse and believe he is going to be a lovely 3YO. I think he is going to appreciate more ground … perhaps even up to and beyond 2000m!
“Yes, that is a big call but it’s the early impression he gives me! What he did today was just really on ability alone and (jockey) Damian Brown endorsed my thoughts by saying he still has quite a bit to learn.
“I loved the way the horse stretched out over the last 100m and the time was also smart … just a tick or two outside of the class record. So, all up, a pretty good effort from the horse.”
Robert has also mapped out a tentative program for the 2YO, including a possible tilt at the Brisbane winter carnival.
