DfRQsPMWkAEYj9sPlaced on his last two outings for us, Calarules made it third time lucky since joining the yard when winning at Stratford yesterday in the hands of Richard Johnson.

A progressive five year old, the grey son of Aussie Rules had looked a little unlucky at Bangor on his latest outing, his first for over three months and, with that under his belt, he produced a career-best performance yesterday, travelling well throughout and putting the race to bed on the home bend, a slight mistake at the last not halting his momentum as he came clear to win by six lengths.

The handicapper shouldn’t be too harsh on him and hopefully he can make a bold bid to follow up next time.  Congratulations to his owners Oceans Racing!
