Japanese import Meiner Freccia kept his impressive fresh record alive kicking off his second Australian campaign with a brilliant first up victory at this afternoon Hawkesbury meeting.
Meiner Freccia was allowed to find his feet from the wide gate drifting back to last, settling kindly under the guidance of Brenton Avdulla before circling the field to produce a nice turn of foot down the centre of the track to gather in the leaders scoring an impressive length victory. “It was a very good win. We were always going to need luck from the gate and I knew if we had any he would be fighting out the finish. Brenton kept him out of trouble and summed up the situation perfectly. Meiner Freccia has always shown nice ability and I’m sure he will continue to race his way through the grades he’s certainly Saturday metropolitan grade and with a bit of luck we will have some fun with him along the way” added Kim.
