He is not a horse known for holding his form which made the runaway success by Saveyourenthusiasm at Geelong on Thursday all the more enjoyable!
“He does not usually put two good runs together,” Robbie said, “but he was never in any doubt!”
Relishing the heavy conditions having always appreciated the sting out, the six-year-old was coming off a dry track victory at Bairnsdale – putting on show his versatility.
Enjoying a good trail midfield, Showyourenthusiasm was widest into the straight and away he went – dashing clear of his rivals to salute by 1 3/4 lengths, a margin which so easily could have been bigger.
“He really showed some enthusiasm!” Robbie said.
It was win number seven for the Savabeel gelding who gets on particularly well with Max Allen who has been aboard for five of those victories.
Bred in New Zealand and purchased at the 2015 Karaka Ready To Run Sale, Saveyourenthusiasm is out of the city winning Danasinga mare Curbyourenthusiasm whose dam is the Gr.3 mare Starcent.
