Bhima Graduate Looking To Test Black Type

Ontrack’s classy mare Test The World, a graduate of Bhima’s Inglis Classic yearling sale draft will strive for her first black type win in tomorrow’s $125,000 BRC Sprint at Doomben.

The Group 3 over 1350 metres is Test The World’s biggest test to date, but she is in great form and comes off a strong second in the listed Silk Stocking Stakes at the Gold Coast.

Adding to her prospects is the perfect barrier draw of gate one and top Sydney jockey Corey Brown sticking with her.

“It really looks the perfect race for her,” said Ontrack Managing Director Grant Morgan.

“She’s had two 1200 metres this time in and both times she has run second to brilliant sprinter Anatola and both races she raced like a mare looking for a stretch out in distance.

“At 1200 she has always been pressured to stay on the pace, but the stretch out to 1350 should allow her to relax a little bit in the early stages and she should be able to get home strongly.

“Test The World has had two runs over 1400 and been placed both times and she’s a stronger mare this time in and tomorrow looks a great chance for her to grab a group race. If she can win or place in the BRC Sprint it would add considerably to her residual value.

“Ontrack has had some great success with mares in stakes races this season and Test The World has long looked like a mare capable of success in black type company,” said Grant Morgan.

Trainer Bjorn Baker heads to Doomben full of confidence in Test The World’s chances.

“Her race at Gold Coast was full of merit, but for me the best part was the way she paraded prior to the event. In her earlier races she has got on the toe and been quite unsettled but at the Gold Coast she paraded in terrific fashion.

“It happens so often when you travel a horse away that they grow up and the penny drops, and I reckon that’s what has happened with Test The World.

“She has settled into her routine perfectly on the Gold Coast and is eating everything we put in front of her and we can’t fault her.

“The draw is a great advantage and Corey should be able to slot her into a perfect spot if there’s a lot of speed from out wide. If they go slow early it won’t be an issue if she leads,” said Bjorn Baker.
