Tyres Are Crucial takes out the Hair Of The Dog feature
Nov 20, 2018
Tyres Are Crucial has finished right over the top of them to claim the BM 65 Hair Of The Dog at Gundagai on the second/final day of their Carnival.
Appreciating the staying journey of 1800m, Tyres was put into a gun spot by Kayla Nisbet as they tracked into the race boldly around the dog leg. Despite laying in under pressure Tyres kept up a strong sprint and was able to overpower the favourite right on the post.
It broke a long run of outs for the Son of Pendragon who possessed so much promise as a younger horse (First five starts read 5: 2w 2p).
Finally with confidence now on his side the stable believe that "Tyres" has many more wins in store.
