Start Wondering Wins 1st Group 1 in 2017
« Back to Articles
Start Wondering back from a race bleed in Australia was too good for a hot field in the Group 1 Sistema Railway at Ellerslie. The horse had shown a lot of promise in NZ and was transferred to the Chris Waller stable in Sydney but bled. He was transferred back to NZ by his owners and placed in the care of Evan & JJ Rayner in Wanganui.
At his 1st start back after the bleed this time wearing a FLAIR nasal strip he won impressively. A wet track tripped him up at his next start before his wonderful Railway win.
Evan Rayner had previously had a lot of success with FLAIR strips with his great winter galloper Van Winkle.
