Oh so close for the Sheik

Sep 27, 2013

Promising Hard Spun gelding Sheik of Tweak went to Geelong today to try and break his maiden. In a fast run race he led everywhere but where it mattered on the line. At the top of the straight he was joined by Sochi and after going head to head all the way to the post he just miissed by the barest of margins. By the time they hit the line the two of them had put 7 lenghts over the rest of the field in a time that would have won the handicap race later in the afternoon. Next time for the Sheik.
