Good looking galloper Aqua Delago kicked off his winning account with a comprehensive maiden victory at Toowoomba.
A three-year-old son of former champion South African sprinter Delago Deluxe and Aqualuna, Aqua Delago started life with Chris Waller Racing in Sydney before being transferred to Toowoomba trainer Ben Currie.
He had two starts for his new stable for a close second and a fifth off a wide draw before clearing maidens with a three-length win two days before Christmas.
“He was a lovely yearling and has developed into a very nice style of horse,” said Ontrack Managing Director Grant Morgan.
“Chris gave him only the one start and he went okay after dipping badly on jumping, however Chris felt he may be better placed in Queensland, so we were happy to send him to Ben Currie.
“Ben has been on our radar for a while now and it was simply a matter of finding the right horse for him.
“Aqua Delago is a BOBS horse so Ben will get the chance to head south over the border for some bonus money when the right races present,” said Grant Morgan.
Trainer Ben Currie was impressed with Aqua Delago’s winning effort after starting from the outside barrier of 10.
“I thought long and hard about running him, but finally decided to run as I thought he could be ridden positively and get over to the lead.
Apprentice Baylee Nothdurft carried out these instructions perfectly and he got a comfortable lead and won with some authority.
an go on with that and add to his tally in this campaign,” said Ben Currie.
