Bettermatch set for Menangle

January 02, 2015 11:45:38 UK

Bettermatch is on course for a feature race at Tabcorp Park Menangle after cruising to victory in the Southern Central Engineering MIA Breeders Plate at Leeton on Thursday night.

Trained by Col Thomas and driven by Nathan Jack, the son of Kenneth J worked to the front soon after the start and was never looked in any kind of danger when going onto record a seven metre victory.

The plan now is to go to Sydney for the Sapling Stakes on February 7th.

“He was no value, he was $1.20, but he still had to get the job done and that’s exactly what he did on Thursday night,” Thomas said.

“The plan now is to go to Sydney for the Sapling Stakes on February 7th, I haven’t knocked him around too much, he has only had the three starts and I chose not to hopple him between the heat and final at Leeton but just kept him ticking over by jogging him.”

It was a good night for Thomas at Leeton as Business In Motion also took out the $10,000 Bells Produce Final for C1/C2 pacers.

“He was very good at Leeton and I have him engaged at Temora on Saturday night in a C1/C2 heat and the final is worth $11,000, and the quick back-up won’t worry him too much,” he added.

“Business In Motion is back racing well and when I go to Sydney with Bettermatch I might look to take him for a race up there. I have a full sister to him called Shes All Business that I like too and although she finished down the track at her first start I might look at taking her as well.”
