All Of Brighton flying
Determined to keep his fantastic race record intact, progressive 3YO Needs Further gelding All Of Brighton dashed home to score another victory down the Flemington straight on Saturday.
A patient ride from jockey Michael Dee saw the son of Needs Further work in his typical racing pattern. Making good use of his electric turn of foot, he let down to win comfortably after being last at the 400-meter mark for trainer Patrick Payne.
Putting together a sound record of three wins from six starts, the specialist sprinter has been unlucky in defeat.
Earlier in the week, fellow Needs Further gelding, Raise ’em Up produced a dominant victory at Kilmore, easing down to win by an easy 3.5L. Raise ’em Up was purchased from Armidale’s 2018 Magic Millions Tasmanian yearling draft by trainer Matthew Brown for $40,000.
Needs Further stands at a fee of $8,800 inc GST for 2021.
