Mr Ahlberoni proves too strong
May 12, 2014
Having only his second race start, Mr Ahlberoni recorded his first victory yesterday with a tough win in the Pelican Waters Golf Club Maiden Handicap over 1400m at the Sunshine Coast.
Jumping from the outside barrier in the field of thirteen, the All Bar One gelding had no luck in the run and was posted three deep throughout. Despite this, he traveled well and when asked to let down in the straight he was much too strong and pulled away to score by one and a half lengths.
Bought at the Magic Millions QTIS sale as a yearling by trainer Bruce Hill, Mr Ahlberoni has always showed promise from very early on. It has however, taken time to get the three year old right and ready for the racetrack and the win was a nice reward for his patient owners.
