Almost Court couldn't be caught at first Australian outing.
Aug 08, 2017
Almost Court has showed a true test of stamina leading all the way at the Sapphire Coast last week.
Racing first-up over the mile, the former NZ galloper was well suited by Scorse's 4kg claim and showed no signs of stopping first-up over the mile.
A winner of one race and a few minors from six attempts across the ditch, the son of Alamosa brought the unknown factor to the race and clearly possessed ability classes above the rest.
Jumping straight on the bunny from the inside draw, Patrick (Scorse) had the big fellow striding along at his own leisure with the field strung out on straightening. The lad nicknamed Almo found another gear and pinched a few lengths on his rivals, racing away to score by two lengths pulling away from A Snip Of Cyndy ($3.90) with Sacred Son ($4.60) a length back in third.
The Court family who originally trained him back home have maintained shares in him along with many loyal clients combining again to enjoy the thrill that this bloke promises to deliver.
