Montegnegro Man Down The Straight

 

Last start city winner Montenegro Man will race down the Flemington straight on Saturday afternoon in the ‘Thank You Firefighters Handicap’ aiming for his second city win this month.

Saturday is a step up in grade compared to his recent win at Caulfield on January 4 in the ‘Melissa Broadley Handicap’ over 1200 metres, but his Trainer Mark Kavanagh believes the four-year-old son of Zoustar is up to the challenge.

“Although Saturday is a step up in grade, with the weight relief and how he has come on since his last start, I believe he rates as a top line contender, said Mark.

“With so much straight racing on the calendar, it's a great opportunity. I won't know how he handles the straight until he has a go. He has drawn the right side of the track jumping from barrier 13 and being down in the weights I am expecting him to run very well here and think he will measure up.”

Montenegro Man is the first foal out of the Jet Spur mare Any Destination, who was also trained by Kavanagh Racing.

Most of the owners who raced Any Destination stayed in her when she retired to stud and they couldn’t be happier with how she is performing as a broodmare. Last year they welcomed a full brother to Montenegro Man into the fold and based on Montenegro Man’s ability they can’t wait to see what the future holds for him.

For now, the focus is on Montenegro Man and we hope the ownership group enjoys another city win, this time at racings headquarters.
