Success for Shtarker
Jan 19, 2014
Off a three week break, four-year-old Ferocity gelding Shtarker headed to his home track of the Gold Coast to contest the Ccs Insurance Solutions (Class Three) over 1400m.
Having recorded three prior victories, Shtarker settled not too far off the leaders in the run and came with a well-timed run to record his fourth career victory, winning the race by a length in what ended up being a pretty dominate display from the consistent galloper.
Ridden for the first time by Cassandra Schmidt, Shtarker’s performance indicating that he may be looking for a little further now.
Racing for third time in this campaign, there looks to be some more wins in him and we wish his connections; A J Chigwidden, A W Maher, D R Lever, G M Lever, J L Hiron, Ms R J Graham, Mrs P E Clingly, M M Clingly, S Gray, T W Palmer, Miss S Palmer & Diceridge Syndicate the best of luck for the rest of his campaign.
While Shtarker’s run was the only win for the day, all of our other runners produced very good efforts for their connections..
Hark Angel and She’s Amazing both ran extremely well to finish second in their respective races, while the Segenhoe Stud-owned Flamingo Lake who was having her first start for the stable finished fourth after tiring late in the run.
Congratulations to the owners of all our runners and best of luck with these galloper moving forward.
