After a series of niggles and setbacks, the 4-year-old Amortal (Writtten Tycoon/Amoret) finally got to make his race debut at Wyong Sunday 23rd January 2022, contesting the TAB.com.au Maiden Plate over 1100m.
He jumped clearly the best but gave up the lead to Legend Rules (I Am Invincible/Is Amazing) to sit on his outside. There he chose to stick close to the race favourite for the whole trip. In the straight at around the 100m mark horse and rider threw down the challenge. The leader soon yielded and under plenty of urging by Apprentice Jockey Tyler Schiller, Amortal came up with the victory.
Congratulations to Darby Racing, their very patient owners, and connections on Amortal’s first win.
