Patrick's Got the Hatrick

May 06, 2020

Tampering ("Patrick"), a 3 year old gelding by Pendragon out of mare, Hayaat, has secured a hatrick of wins after winning the following races in succession:-

NOWR 29Mar20 1400m Soft5 MDN $22,000 ($11,200) Adrian Layt 58.5kg Barrier 12, 59kg 1:23.14 (600m 35.73).

Patrick had to do it tough to secure this win.  He was wide the trip and had to do a lot of work, three wide the journey.  He showed a lot of class at the turn into the straight and was able to secure his maiden win in nice style in front of Unrestricted in 2nd place and River Charge in 3rd place.

K GR 18Apr20 1500m Good4 CL1 $31,500 ($15,065) Adrian Layt 56.5kg Barrier 7 Rtg 56
2nd Silent Agenda 56kg, 3rd Just Society (NZ) 60kg 1:30.92 (600m 34.26)

In this race, Patrick jumped out positively and was able to take a sit at the front of the field in the leading pair.  He travelled beautifully for Adrian and, upon turning into the straight, nicely increased his lead to secure his 2nd win in a row from Silent Agenda in 2nd position and Just Society in 3rd.

K GR 28Apr20 1600m Good4 BM70 $31,500 ($15,065) Adrian Layt 56kg Barrier 9 Rtg 61
2nd Navy Cross 56.5kg, 3rd Musume 55kg 1:36.35 (600m 35.39)

After jumping from an awkward barrier, Patrick was placed in a position where he had to press on and go forward shortly after the gates crashed open.  He travelled up quickly and took his position on the outside of the leader of the pack.  Again, he looked to travel nicely for Adrian and secured his third win in a row from Navy Cross in 2nd and Musume in 3rd position.


Us all here at the stables are thrilled with how Patrick is performing.  He is certainly a happy horse and his race day performance is reflecting same.  We would like to congratulate owners, Deidre and Alex.  Thank you for your ongoing support.  Lets hope there are many more wins to come for Patrick.
