Merlin magnificent at first run for stable
Nov 28, 2017
In a satisfying win for the stable, Baby Merlin has saluted at his first run under our care, taking out a Rockhampton Maiden on Tuesday.
It was the first time he stepped out in a race in almost eleven months, and despite doing some things wrong in the run home, showed he's capabilities by recording a comfortable victory.
Settling mid-field, jockey Adam Sewell had Baby Merlin travelling comfortably at the top of the long Rockhampton straight, easing him into open space before asking for his effort inside the final 400m.
Baby Merlin had to dig in deep late, but found plenty to record a much deserved win.
The run will be a big confident-booster for the him, and we're looking forward to the rest of his campaign.
