Amanaat Back Among The Winners

Racing Online - Horse Racing News - Amanaat Back Among The Winners

Consistent sprinter Amanaat has bounced back from serious injury to win at on Saturday and put himself on a route.

Amanaat ($4) was having his first start since breaking his jaw when he beat ($2.20) by 3/4 length with a half head to ($7.50) in the Open Hcp (1200m).

The gelding was tipped to play a major role in the winter carnival after winning the Listed Weetwood Hcp (1200m) on April 7.

However, he was declared a non runner at his next start at Doomben when he broke his jaw in a barrier accident.

Trainer , who wasn't at the track, has worked long and hard to get Amanaat back on track.

His father said it was pleasing to see Amanaat back among the winners after the enforced lay off.

“We will wait until Ben gets back and then we can map out a plan for him. He's done a good job,” Currie said.

Winning said Amanaat was a strong galloper who would mix it in higher company.

“He really showed plenty of heart in the straight,” he said.

Tumbler was unlucky and was held up for a run at a vital stage.

“Just another barrier trial,” trainer lamented.

Trainer said he was pleased with Niccanova who could also head south in the spring.

“He was a different horse today from his first up defeat. It was a good run,” Tregea said.
