Two tendons and over two years between runs was the report card for Antah when he was sent down to Denistoun Park. Add in barrier rogue and you have the full picture of the task set for the team to get this talented galloper back to the races. Others had tried and failed , we maybe got lucky but get him back we did. The Boss will deflect all the praise to others for this staggering win . The sign of a smart leader is the ability to source the best talent and delegate. Lee Evison for the tendon , Amy McDonald for the rehab and Julien Welsh for the barrier manners. Final part of the jigsaw , patient owners who pay the bills and wait for race day.

That day finally arrived and with it an explosive win that really does deserve all the plaudits for the training performance . Race morning the horse was bouncing and the reality hit that he may run a cheeky race . Punters went back through his form and without stable assistance his price tumbled in the early markets. Sent around a $16 shot he won like an odds on pop streaking clear from the home turn. Sublime ride from the emerging talent that is Clayton Douglas and a decent little BM70 it was as well. This horse has a stack of natural ability , it will be wing and a prayer that he stays sound . If he does we have another class galloper in the team.

To his owners we thank them for the trust to send him to us. Friendship and the Bel Esprit breeding got him to the farm. He is up there with the best in the stable and we are confident we have a number of smart horses ready to unleash.

This is a mighty victory for team work. The well worn adage of “There is no I in team ” clearly applies here. There is also no I in Jason Warren , no ego at play , he just wants to be the best horseman he can. Mate this is a pretty clear example of how good you are .
