Thoroughbred Breeders Victoria (TBV) was quick off the mark on Friday, sending out a press release within minutes of Strike The Tiger’s record breaking run at Geelong.
The Bel Esprit 3YO – who won his first three starts in Tasmania including the Listed Gold Sovereign Stakes at two – became the first horse to break the 58 second barrier for 1000m on Geelong’s Thoroughtrack.
Veteran jockey, Steven King, had nothing but praise for the Bel Esprit youngster: “He’s a speed horse and that’s just what he did!”
Strike The Tiger – along with a number of other top notch performers – was bred in Tassie by long-time Eliza Park supporters Dr Vu Van Tu and Amanda Lockett.
