Followers of the Mongolian Khan galloper Unseen Ruler NZ had every right to be a little nervous watching him run on his home track today, the gelding was last coming into the home turn on a track where not many had made up ground all day.
With regular jockey Dean Yendall sidelined due to injury, Jarrod Fry took the ride in the 1700m benchmark 64. When jumping only fairly from barrier 10 he looked like he was going to be caught wide, so Fry elected to restrain him settling at the tail of the field ten lengths off the leader. With a tempo ran to suit he came the widest on the turn finishing off far too well claiming the race by almost two lengths.
Congratulations to his connections, we now look forward to heading to Sandown in a BM 70 over 1800m and we hope he can continue on his winning way.
