Towering 4yo Thewayweare (an 80k purchase from Windsor Park at Karaka 2013), has taken time to fill his considerable frame AND for the racing penny to drop. However victory at Goulburn Sunday over 2300m, his second on the trot, suggests his patient owners could well be eventually rewarded.
Prepared by John Thompson at Randwick the gelding by Thewayyouare had run just one placing in his first 7 starts over two campaigns prior to his recent wins. Jockey Brenton Avdullah seized the initiative in the six horse field to take up the running from the get go and despite tending to go keenly for the first half of the race, the horse strode away to win by more than two lengths.
A half brother to STAKES winner LADY LE FAY and stakes placed The Tidy Express, Thewayweare owes much of his undoubted stamina to dam-sire ZABEEL whose daughters are enjoying another stellar season producing spring stars TARZINO, MAHUTA & FENWAY as well as yesterday’s KILMORE CUP winner RHYTHM TO SPARE.
