Northern Meteor Wins at Canterbury
09 Oct 2008
In a 1250 metre maiden he stormed home to win by over four lengths. What was most impressive though is that he did it in record time.
After two runs in August under John Hawkes stable he crossed to Gai Waterhouse and found immediate success. The clock froze at 1:12.47 beating the previous record set by Cateclipse who was also trained by Gai. The record has stood since October 2005.
Blake Shinn, the winning jockey, was ecstatic and said , “He’s a relaxed horse and Gai said to ride him like a good thing, I’m sure Gai will turn him into a potential Group horse.”
