SIR ISAAC SALUTES

Talented 3 year old Sir Isaac opened his winning account with a comfortable 1 and3/4 length victory in the restricted maiden over 1400m at Kranji on January 8th. Sporting the all Apricot Silks of owner Nick Johnston, Sir Isaac is owned by the same partnership that raced Wall Street Boy. With Nick and Paul Robbins on track and Greg Perry watching the race live in Australia, connections never really had any moments of concern as jockey Michael Rodd shot away at the top of the straight and he went to the line a comfortable winner.

Whilst always showing ability, Sir Isaac had proved a touch frustrating running 4 seconds in his first 5 starts, and narrowly missing the prize on a couple of occasions through his waywardness and lack of race experience. However, the step up to 1400m was ideal and he does shape as a horse that may well get over more ground in the future. Still a work in progress and lets not forget a young horse, the owners can look forward to an exciting 2017 as there seems to be plenty of scope for further improvement with their talented son of Dream Ahead.

Sir Isaac was purchased by Cliff from the 2015 Magic Millions yearling sale on the Gold Coast, and has now amassed nearly $100,000 in prize money, once again showing how lucrative racing a horse in Singapore can be.
