Thrilling 2nd Up Win for Brad the Lad
May 03, 2017
The last week has been a successful one for us here at the K J Parker Racing Stables.
First we had Heavenly Anna win at Randwick, followed by Red Dubawi at Canterbury, and now a fantastic 2nd up win from the big grey boy, Brad the Lad.
Brad raced on the 30th April 2017 in a 1200 metre Class 1 on a soft 5 rated track at Nowra. He had in form jockey Jay Ford on board.
He missed the kick from barrier 6 quite significantly, putting him in a disadvantaged position from the get-go. However, under the guidance of Jay he moved up to join the pack not too long after, settling at the rear.
At the turn, Jay waits for an opening, which is given to him, and Brad embarks on his split down the middle.
At approach of the 100 metres, Brad kicks into another gear and absolutely storms home for a nail biting finish on the line, winning the race from Magic Dust by a neck.
We are all so extremely proud of Brad the Lad's run and win at Nowra, and also to all our other horses who are finding great form of late.
Congratulations to all connections!!
