Fun proves too strong at Ipswich

Aug 10, 2014

Lightly raced gelding, Fun recorded his first victory on Friday by taking out the Premier Jockey Maiden Plate over 1200m at Ipswich. 

Having only his forth race start, Fun is still learning what racing is all about and he didn't provide jockey Matthew McGuren with the easiest of rides.  The four year old still wants to race keen and to McGuren's credit, he never panicked and was able to guide him to a narrow victory.

The Hidden Dragon gelding has now recorded a win and two seconds from just his four starts and it looks as though there is still plenty of improvement to come, as he learns to relax in his races.
