Yesterday, we saw Bringagem demolish the field at Canterbury, winning his 2nd race in six days. Today, 2YO Test Of War (Testa Rossa x War Flower) won on debut as he took on the older horses at Wyong!
Sent out as favourite, it was a nervous time for his owners having only had the one trial leading into his first ever start.
Jockey Tim Clark rode him a treat as he drove a very ‘new’ Test Of War to the line ‘hands and heals’, winning by half a length. To win on debut in such trying conditions against older horses is a real testament to Test Of War’s talent.
Congratulations to Portelli Racing and his owners!
