Olympian Stable 4 year old Kratos, made a successful return to the races with a hard fought victory in the Class 4 1000m on Sunday 13th of August. After an injury enforced layoff, Kratos had not been seen at the races since a close up 2nd placing on January 29th behind the smart horse Nova missile.
Following this first up win Kratos stepped up to class 3 company over 1000m on Friday 1st of September. This time with Barend Vorster taking the reigns. Kratos with a light weight again showed sustained speed followed by a strong kick to take out the race by a length.
With these two victories Kratos, a son of New Zealand stallion Guillotine, has been a model of consistency, taking his record to 8 starts for 3 wins, 3 seconds and 1 third, and stake money of over $160,000 for Olympian stable. Whilst off the scene since January, again patience by both Cliff and Olympian stable has prevailed. Hipefully more victories will follow.
