Imported gelding HUMBOLT CURRENT (GB) moved to the Chris Waller Gold Coast stable last week; a move which displayed perfect placement by our champion trainer when the gelding showed his rivals a clean pair of heels in the 2,212 metres event at Eagle Farm on Saturday.
HUMBOLT CURRENT (GB) began well to settle in a lovely position, in the second half of the field behind good speed. He travelled well throughout and tracked into the race at the 500 metres mark. Once jockey Michael Cahill balanced the gelding in the straight, he sprinted quickly down the outside and drew away for a very soft win by 2 lengths. Michael reported post race that he always felt like he was on the winner and this win will boost the gelding's confidence. HUMBOLT CURRENT (GB) had met some soft and heavy tracks in his Sydney starts prior and the good track on Saturday certainly enabled him to produce his very good turn of foot.
Congratulations to the winning HUMBOLT CURRENT (GB) connections including our Star Thoroughbreds' owners Paramount Racing (Manager: Kathryn Wood), Boeara Holdings (Manager: Denise Dunphy), Chris Olliver, Brent Hudson, Judy Hudson, George Ardill, Robert McKay, John Saunders, Victoria Johnson.
