Never Fazed About This Winner
Having his second start for Peter and Paul Snowden, Testa Rossa four-year-old gelding Never Fazed headed to Newcastle on Saturday to contest the final race of the day, the Strathayr (Benchmark 65) over 1200m.
A first-up fourth almost three weeks back, Never Fazed appeared slightly uncomfortable on the heavy track that day, and back to a good surface on Saturday, everything fell into place for the Finemore Thoroughbreds, Planette Thoroughbred Trading Pty Ltd, Laurel Oak Bloodstock Pty Ltd, Boeara Holdings, Mr P J Duggan, Mr P J Macbeth, Mr A N Fitzgerald, Mrs K A Fraser, Mr D A Jeffery, Rdfit Pty Ltd and Mr R Ward-owned runner.
Ridden by Mitchell Bell, never Fazed defeated Dylan’s Rojo by a head, with a short head to Star Thriller in third.
If you’re a watcher of the trials and the form, Never Fazed was a certainty as in his final trial before his first-up run this time in he finished third, beaten one-and-a-half lengths by Dear Demi, with that mare proving too classy in the Group Two Stock Stakes on Friday night – but then again, there are no certainties in racing!!
