Impregnable maintained his perfect form since a move to Queensland when he scored a tough win at Ballina today.
The son of I Am Invincible carried 60 kilograms to a narrow, but decisive win, to take his record to three wins from three starts for Gold Coast trainer Toby Edmonds.
Impregnable was previously prepared at Caufield by Mick Price and had six starts in Victoria for five minor placings.
“Mick recommended we move him to Queensland as he felt the horse might struggle in city company in Melbourne and that’s proved to be a great call,” said Ontrack Managing Director Grant Morgan.
“Ontrack’s major aim is to race horses capable of winning in city races and we encourage all our trainers to advise us if they believe a horse will struggle to win city races in their care.
“It’s about doing the right thing by the horse and our owners, and Impregnable’s form is a perfect example of finding the best place for a horse. He can aim up to a city race now that he’s found form and we are confident there’s better wins in store for the horse,” said Grant Morgan.
Rider Robbie Fradd has now won two on Impregnable and he has no doubts that the horse can win in metropolitan company.
“He is a smart sprinter. The ground today was probably a little bit soft for him, but he was very brave and when I eased him around the leader’s heels and asked him to chase he gave me everything.
“It was a good win under 60 kilos and he was very, very tough and fought right to the line.”
Trainer Toby Edmonds said Impregnable has done a great job since heading north and he will now give the horse a few easy days before mapping out a plan.
“He has done a super job since coming north so will have a few easy days before we decide what to do with him.
“The option is to look at a Class 3 or a no metropolitan win race on a Saturday in Brisbane or keep poking around the northern rivers area of New South Wales.
“He’s a handy little sprinter so we will make sure we do the right thing by the horse, but he has a good future,” said Toby Edmonds.
