This 3YO bay gelding by Vespa now has two wins and three seconds from his five starts. Plus two trials wins. His first win came over 1000m at Awapuni in November 2020, ridden by Danielle Johnson. He blitzed the field to win by 4L.
After a spell, he ran a nice 2nd at Hawera on 3rd Sept, and then notched his second win at Hastings a couple of weeks later. He followed that up with a good 2nd in the Gr2 Hawkes Bay Guineas on 2nd October 2021. It seems that plenty of good things are in store for this boy and his connections!
