Good ride from Andrew Fortune makes the difference
3 year old gelding VASCO by Captain Al out of Selika by National Emblem won a 14 runner 1600 metres maiden at Kimberley today, just getting up to beat MUSCLE MAN by a short head. In the colours of his breeder David Allan representing him and partners, the quite late first foal has been knocking on the door with three recent places.
Andrew Fortune is spending today at Kimberley and was booked by trainer Peter Miller for VASCO (4/1). Breaking well enough, the pair sat comfortably 6th or so until coming with a smooth run in the straight, just overhauling the long time leader and 2/1 favourite MUSCLE MAN with the 3rd well behind.
