Vega One Return Overshadows Just Orm’S Win

Racing Online - Horse Racing News - Australian Horse Racing News - Vega One Return Overshadows Just Orm’S Win

Track specialist Just Orm upset some of the winter hopefuls but it was stablemate Vega One who turned in the run of the race at the Sunshine Coast.

Just Orm ($9.50) made it four wins from seven starts over 1000m at the track in the Henzells Agency Handicap.

Favourite Tango’s Mate ($3.50) lost no winter admirers with his second while another track specialist Ringo’s A Rockstar ($7) ran his usual honest race for third.

But it was Vega One who ran the eye-catcher, coming from three lengths last at the 700m to finish fourth after an interrupted run in the straight.

Vega One is already in the Group One Stradbroke Handicap on June 6 thanks to winning the ballot-exempt The Gateway in December.

Trainer Tony Gollan, who completed a winning treble, was thrilled with both Vega One and Just Orm.

“Vega One had 62 kgs today and he would have made it very interesting had he got a clear run in the straight,” Gollan said.

“He is a very good horse and I can hardly wait for the Stradbroke.

“He will go to the Group Three BRC Stakes in a fortnight, the Group Two Victory Stakes a fortnight after that and then the Stradbroke on June 6.

“Not having the pressure of beating the ballot was a big benefit.”
