Kentucky Breeze is Back

 

Kentucky Breeze returned to the winner’s stall on Saturday after taking out Race 8, the VRC Recognition Handicap over 1600m at Flemington.

Superbly ridden by Jamie Lee Kah, the four-year-old son of Pierro jumped well and settled mid-field. He was positioned perfectly on the outside and finished off in true Kentucky Breeze style to win by a neck.

Jamie said that Levi gave her a lot of confidence before the race and that Kentucky Breeze didn’t disappoint.

“Levi gave me a lot of confidence before the race, he said this horse has been drawing barrier one and he hates being on the inside. I was very mindful to keep him off the rail, I was three wide early when we probably didn’t have to be, but I just wanted to give him plenty of room,” said Jamie.

“On the turn I thought he was going to give me something, I gave him a jig and geez he gave me everything.”

It’s been a challenging few months for Kentucky Breeze and his connections. He’s had a few niggling issues, as well as drawing barrier one in most of his starts.  

“His form has been a bit mixed of late, he has drawn barrier one four out of his last five starts. When he gets stuck on the fence he struggles to get out and really have a crack,” said Levi.

“Today full credit to Jamie Kah she got him right out and into the open and rode exactly to my instructions, and he was really strong to the line. He seems like he’s back to his old self which is great.”

“At this stage he’ll probably head to the Valley in two weeks’ time.”

A big congratulations to his owners who celebrated his fourth win, third metropolitan win. Let’s hope he can make it five wins when he heads to the Valley in a fortnight.

This lovely colt by exciting young sire Deep Field has recently returned from our breaker Ray Matthews, who had nothing but praise for the two-year-old. To be trained by Levi Kavanagh, he has settled into his first preparation at Flemington like a seasoned racehorse. Purchased from the Inglis Classic sale earlier this year, there are still opportunities available.

Very unlucky last start at Flemington Racecourse, Helmaz more than deserved the win today. His jockey Lachlan King, who also rode him last start, was quietly confident coming into todays race.
