JAJA SAAB BRILLIANT FIRST UP

Dec 04, 2013

State City gelding JaJa Saab kept his outstanding first up record intact by winning in good style at Pinjarra Park on 10.11.13.

JaJa Saab has won 3 times from 4 starts when racing first up. Ridden by top hoop Troy Turner, JaJa Saab was ridden quietly in the early stages of the 1200m handicap. There was a hectic pace up front that suited Troy and JaJa Saab perfectly. At the top of the straight Troy balanced his mount up and wound him up with a well timed run to win by a head on the line.

It was nice to see JaJa Saab return from a spell in winning form .His last campaign was hampered by some hoof problems and returned to the paddock after 3 runs.

JaJa Saab followed up his winning first up performance with a solid 3rd at Ascot beaten 1 length. Another win looks just around the corner for the smart type.

Congratulations to winning owner the Geraldton based Bob Cocking.
