The Lad Does It Again
Sep 16, 2018
Grand Syndicates gelding Zoffany’s Lad continued his red hot form with another win at Taree today.
Returning to the scene of his maiden victory less than two weeks ago, The Lad had the punters lined up to collect halfway down the straight, while his owners were off to Bunnings for another picture hook as he put his rivals to the sword after being heavily backed late into as short as $2.70.
With jockey Ben Looker retaining the ride, he was forced to race wide most of the trip from his outside gate and was the widest runner as they swung into the straight. It mattered little however, with the $17,500 purchase quickly putting his rivals away, going on to score an easy win.
He takes his record this prep to 2 wins and an unlucky second, with the promise of more to come.
Congratulations to his owners, and special thanks to his trainer Grant Allard and his staff for turning the former “bad boy” around.
