Muscle Factory Crushes Rivals In AP Gold Final

He came, he saw, he conquered!

Sydney juvenile Muscle Factory made a clean sweep of the Gr.1 $100,450 Albion Park Gold Brisbane Graduates 2yo Final last night (Saturday) with another breathtaking victory.

It was the final major for the Queensland season and the winning effort was clearly the most emphatic.

Starting as a clear punters elect, Muscle Factory ($1.00 fav) spaced Miss Moneybags ($21) and Timeless Appeal ($63) to claim the juvenile feature in a two-year-old track record time of 1:53.0.

The previous mark belonged to Colt Thirty One at 1:53.9.

Muscle Factory pushed forward from his outside draw and recorded sectionals of 29.4, 29.5, 27.4 and 26.8 seconds.

His winning margin was a massive 37.9 metres.

Prepared by Menangle based trainer Shane Tritton and handled by his wife Lauren, the Roll With Joe colt completes his rookie term with a record of 5 wins from 9 starts.

“He’s so exciting, he’s off to the paddock now and I’m really looking forward to next season with him. The three-year-old term is the busiest but its hard not be pumped up about it given what he’s done this term.” Tritton said

The previous week when successful in his heat, Muscle Factory rated 1:54.1.

Purchased midway through the season, Muscle Factory boasts placings in the Gr.1 $350,000 Australian Pacing Gold Final at TABCORP Park, Melton and in the Gr.1 $125,000 NSW Breeders Challenge Final at TABCORP Park, Menangle.

He has banked more than $110,000 in stakes.

Muscle Factory is raced by Clive and Rona McKay and Dayna Kahlefeldt.
