Trainer Comments - Chris Anderson
"Good to see him get the job done it was a big effort from a tough gate, I spoke to connections in the main Duncan Ramage pre-race and we just accepted we'd have to ride him that way."
"There have been some really genuine excuses in his defeats so far this prep, there has been a little bit of criticism but he's always been vulnerable relying on speed and tempo up front."
"That's the pattern he just relishes getting back and having one crack at them, it was a big effort from the horse and Jimmy (Orman) in the worst part of the track."
"Hopefully now we can look at some better races through the Winter program, over the mile at Doomben and then possibly up to the 1800 and 2200 metre listed races."
"He was always getting lumped with the 59 kilos in the three-year-old races and even though he only carried 54.5 today he's done it against older class six horses, there is a lot of merit to that win."
Race Review –
Chris Anderson’s exciting three-year-old Profit has come from stone last to beat the Class 6 field over the mile at the Sunshine Coast.
A solid $2.10 favourite for the event punters and connections would have been on the edge of their seats, jockey Jimmy Orman forced to ease back from a wide gate and rely on the gelding’s finishing sprint to round up the field.
Still last and ten off the leader at the turn it looked like history may repeat itself when the horse arrived a lick to late last start at Doomben, but the step up to the mile and the wide Sunshine Coast circuit were enough to see his first win this prep.
Anderson has not been shy to voice his ambitions with the horse the Dundeel/Opportunity progeny expected to be looking at black type form and beyond very soon.
Second placed Tokoriki Lad was a big run for the Gollan stable, three wide without cover the trip he only went down in the last stride.
Local Mymming rounded out the placings for Stuart Kendrick turning it’s form around to place at $11.
