Opaki-based owner-trainer Kylie Little was over the moon when her gavelhouse.com debutant Easy Habit made light work of the Wanganui Jockey Club 1200m course yesterday.
The son of Super Easy was purchased as a weanling by Little in July 2017 for $1,500 and the now three-year-old went into the race with two trials and five winning barrier trials under his belt as preparation.
“Heading into the race we were pretty confident as his mum was a wet tracker,” offered Little.
Easy Habit jumped well from a wide gate with Madan Singh in the saddle and went to the lead in the Heavy 11 conditions.
“He jumped super, I was just hoping he would find the outside rail.”
“He’s pulled up like he hasn’t had a run, he’s is a little superstar. You wouldn’t know he’d raced at all.”
“We will see how he is over the next few weeks but there might be something for him at Rotorua over 1200m or 1400m if we don’t sell him in the meantime.”
At the moment Little has four other horses in work with this the second win for the stable in the last fortnight, “We have a great team in work at the moment, they are an exciting bunch.”
Easy Habit was sold on gavelhouse.com on account of his breeder Nearco Stud and is out of the five-time winning Castledale mare Queen of the Castle. Nearco Stud have an unreserved Vadamos weanling filly at Lot 2 in the current 39-Lot gavelhouse.com auction. Bidding is set to close from 7pm on Monday 8 July.
