Burleigh Heads wins at Doomben

Apr 17, 2012

Promising youngster Burleigh Heads scored his first win on Saturday taking out the Ambassador Travel 2 Year Old Handicap at Doomben.

Jumping from barrier four, Burleigh Heads was pushed to the front by jockey Grant Cooksley and lead all the way to score by just under half a length from the Patinack Farm filly Utilism.

Trainer Bruce Hill has always had a high opinion of the son of Choisir who was unplaced in his first preparation.  "He was a handful early on so we decided to turn him out and geld him and he's come back a really nice horse", Hill stated.
