Big boys back at it again
Mar 18, 2020
Two of the most consistent horses in the stable will be at it again on Saturday when LOSTARC and COBBERS MATE take each other on in the CHAD HANCOCK FOUNDATION HANDICAP over 2250M.
When these two met just 2 weeks ago LOSTARC won with 'COBBERS' running a strong 3rd. LOSTARC had previously shown he could handle a trip past 2400M however it was pleasing to see COBBERS MATE show he could too.
The two have an outstanding career records of finishing in the placings and top 5.
LOSTARC was purchased for just $30,000 at the 2017 Adelaide Magic Millions and the 5yo is looking to crack $200,000 with a win here. His 33 career starts have netted 26 'Top 5' finishes.
Ryan Balfour said of LOSTARC, " He's won x4 Metro class races in the past 12 months and he seems to be really enjoying his racing and stable life"
COBBERS MATE has finished in the top 5 on x19 occasions of his past x23 runs, in three of the others he ran 6th.
Ryan Balfour said " They've both been great for the stable and I'd suggest there is plenty more to come. It's no secret that finding a tough horse who can run 2000M and further in South Australian can provide you years of fun and these two are going to do just that".
