Talented Dream Ahead gelding Sir Isaac produced a barnstorming finish to claim the Kranji Stakes A over 1200m on Friday 7th September. Ridden for the first time by New Zealand (and now Singapore based) Alysha Collett, Sir Isaac had to overcome a good field which included race favorite and 9 time winner Distinctive Darci.
Collett allowed Sir Isaac to settle at the tail of the field in the 1200m scamper, and with a light weight and big sprint, it was just a case of whether Sir Isaac could reel in the pack. Collett came with a brilliantly time run to land the prize. On hand to witness the win were Nick Johnston, Paul Robbins and friends which included racing enthusiast Mr Ho.
Sir Isaac hadn’t greeted the judge since August 2017, but has been a model of consistency. Knee surgery to remove a small knee chip early in the year, had sidelined him, but a huge first up run over 100m on August 17 where he ran second, showed that he had made a complete recovery. A horse that possesses enormous natural ability, Sir Isaac looks certain to add more wins in the very near future.
Raced by Greg Perry and Singapore ex pats Nick Johnston and Paul Robbins, Sir Isaac has now had 3 wins and 9 placings a has earned more than $300,000 in stake money. Greg Perry enjoyed a weekend double with his classy filly What’s New winning on Sunday 9th.
