First Up Win for Fit For Purpose

 The lightly raced Fit For Purpose recorded his third career win when winning first up for the second time in his seven start career.

After rain had caused three horses to be scratched from the field the general thought was Fit For Purpose was going to have to do it all himself as he is usually better off in a fast pace race.

Sent out as the 2nd favourite at $3.60 Fit for Purpose had drawn the fence in the small field of six runners. McGillivray allowed Fit For Purpose to drift back early on before making ground up along the inside into fourth position as they passed the 500 metre mark.

On straightening McGillivray stuck to the fence and was looking to take the run through hard up against the paint. As they passed the 200 metre marker there were four horses across the track all hopeful of being the potential winner of this race.

Inside the last 100 metres the liking for wet tracks in his pedigree shone through enabling Fit For Purpose to record a win giving his mother Gag Order a winning double on the day after Yeahnah had also won earlier on the card.

Congratulations to breeder Craig Cygler and owners Mrs A Cygler, Mrs S McIntosh & Mrs M Fowler on the second win for the day.

On this occasion Fit For Purpose was strapped by Stuart Christie.
