Ballarat Brilliance For Brilliant Concept
Jul 02, 2019
Three year old Star Witness gelding Brilliant Concept was able to get his maiden win on the board at Ballarat on the synthetic in a head bobbing photo finish. With the luck going his way stablemate and race favourite Denatin was delegated to second place with the 0.1 length margin.
Given a great front running ride by jockey Damien Thornton, he jumped well from barrier 5 and was able to cross the field and take up the lead on the rail. Setting a moderate tempo in the first half of the 1500m event he was challenged in the straight but kicked on strongly to hold on for a tough win.
Congratulations to his owners and we hope he now has the confidence to go on his winning way. His race record now reads 8- 1:3:0
