Talented racemare Test The world continued her march towards black type racing with another gritty performance to win at Rosehill on Saturday.
Test The World took her career record to six wins and four minor placings from only 10 career starts and her earnings are now $311,475 which is a fantastic return on the $40,000 she cost Ontrack Thoroughbreds boss Grant Morgan at the Inglis Sale.
“She was a nice yearling but we knew from day one we had to be patient with her so she didn’t step out in her first race until last Christmas when she debuted as a three-year-old at Scone,” said Grant Morgan.
“She only had the three runs in her first preparation and that policy of being patient and letting them develop both physically and mentally is now paying dividends.
“It’s hard to win six out of your first 10 starts anywhere, let alone in Saturday racing in Sydney so we are thrilled with how she is going.
“The plan is to find suitable races that lead into a black type result for her. If she can land in the right listed or group race she is going to be competitive and a win in a stakes race will see her residual value soar,” said Grant Morgan.
Trainer Bjorn Baker has made no secret of the high regard he has for Test The World and was thrilled with the way she came back at Rosehill.
“I have always liked this mare and I’m confident there is a good race win in her future. She ran good time in winning, but the thing that impressed me most was the way she recovered after copping a decent bump when the horse inside her ran out under pressure in the straight.
“Not many horses could cop such a severe bump and pick themselves up again and go on a win. She has a tremendous will to win and a lot of times she has looked beaten but manages to pin her ears back and get the job done.
“She’s come through the race well and we will give her an easy time while we mull over the options for her in the next few weeks,” said Bjorn Baker.
