HUMBOLT CURRENT (GB) has shown a preference for 2,000 metres at Doomben and he once again displayed this on Saturday as he recorded his third win over the trip at the Brisbane track. The 6 year old son of Fastnet Rock settled towards the rear of the field during running where he travelled comfortably. The runners bunched approaching the home turn and upon straightening jockey Jim Byrne guided the gelding to the centre of the track and HUMBOLT CURRENT (GB) wound up down the straight to overtake the leaders and win with a determined effort on the line.
With 5 wins now in Australia, HUMBOLT CURRENT (GB) now has career earnings in excess of $400,000 and again he performed well over 2,000 metres. The gelding enjoys life in Queensland and has relished both preparations from Chris’ Gold Coast stable.
Congratulations to the winning HUMBOLT CURRENT (GB) connections including our Star Thoroughbreds’ owners Paramount Racing (Manager: Kathryn Wood), Boeara Holdings (Manager: Denise Dunphy), Chris Olliver, Brent Hudson, Judy Hudson, George Ardill, Robert McKay, John Saunders, Victoria Johnson.
