Off to Colac we went with Rocky Raccoon to contest the Christians Bus Line Maiden Plate over 1,600m.
Rocky Raccoon, a three year old by Americain, was purchased at the 2016 Vobis Gold Sale. He had a couple of educational runs as a two year old, then we tucked him away knowing he just needed time.
In his second preparation with us, Rocky Raccoon showed a great turn of speed when finishing third at his first start back at Stawell. He was looking and feeling a treat as he lined up for his second start with Neil Farley onboard.
He jumped well, settled in second place and when in the straight he he took the lead. When Neil hit the accelerator, he drew away winning by 2.75 lengths! Big thanks to a great confident ride by Neil Farley.
