The “Force” is definitely with him…
Mar 22, 2014
Recording his third consecutive victory for the stable, four-year-old Duelled gelding Duelled Force headed to his home track of the Gold Coast on Saturday to start first-up this time in, contesting the Akubra ClassTwo Handicap over 1200m.
Having won a barrier trial a few weeks prior by an impressive margin, the Matthew Palmer-ridden gelding started a short priced favourite and settled just off the leaders in the run, always appearing to have them covered.
Winning by three-quarters of a length, the Miss R B Flynn, R J Howlett, B Srmoj, S J Costa, J Fekete & C E Barkworth-owned gelding is a credit to all who work with him.
With this being only his first up run this time in, there is no reason why the fellow won’t really go on with it his campaign, and there are exciting times ahead for Duelled Force and his owners!
With She’s Country, a Group One winner over 2400m in the pedigree, and the sire of Duelled Force being successful at stakes level over 2040m, there is no reason to think he will not extend past 1400m and we are excited to see how far he can go.
