Tavistock 4yo one to watch

29 Oct 2017

Tavistock gelding Viktor Vegas looked a horse to watch after scoring at Ellerslie on Saturday.

It was the Bob Emery-bred and raced four-year-old Tavistock gelding’s second win at just his third start for trainers Murray Baker and Andrew Forsman.

“We think a fair bit of him and we were pretty confident he would go well on Saturday,” noted co-trainer Murray Baker.

“His work has been very good and he was ready to run a race first up. He doesn’t mind a bit of cut in the ground, so I thought he would be able to handle the conditions okay.

“There’s plenty of development left in him so we will take him along slowly and try to get him through the grades before we think about a specific target for him.” - NZ Racing Desk
