3YO Test Of War won as a 2YO against the older horses at his first start. Since resuming as a 3YO, the son of Testa Rossa has had very little luck.
Coming off the back of an unlucky run at Canterbury last start, the market had him a $2.10 chance. He was the best backed runner all day.
Dropping back in grade and the addition of blinkers had seen Test Of War win in very dominant fashion, despite carrying 60.5kg. "The addition of the blinkers made a big difference ", said Portelli. "Today will give him some confidence moving forward".
Teat Of War was just a $50k purchase from the Turranga draft at the 2017 Inglis Classic.
