We’re not so sure about the name, but it’s pretty clear that Shinzig youngster, Beer Belly, has more than his share of ability.
Stepping out in the Devenportracingclub.com 2YO Plate over 1150m at Devenport yesterday, Beer Belly showed plenty of class to score comfortably for trainer Adam Trinder.
This was only the second start for the Shinzig bay who had no luck when fourth on debut on a heavy surface in Hobart on 8 July.
Bred by Gavan Burns and sold by Eliza Park at last year’s Tasmanian Yearling Sale, Beer Belly (pictured below as a yearling) is out of the Xaar mare, Myxaar, a half sister to AJC Doncaster Handicap-G1 winner Triple Honour.
This is Shinzig’s second city winner, following on from the unbeaten Adelaide flyer, Psychic Mick.
