After a couple of luckless runs on heavy tracks, Aramis (Contributer IRE/Bella Carolina NZ) today, Thursday 23rd June 2022, claimed his Class 1 in style, bringing his A-game to Gosford to contest the Central Coast Cleaning Contractors Handicap over 1600m.

Aramis was the consummate professional, teaming up with regular rider Tom Sherry and jumping from barrier 4 without incident. He then drifted back, positioned on the fence but remained comfortable in running. At the turn he came out wide to obtain open ground and challenge the leaders. He then loomed up to Dirty Merchant (Merchant Navy/Onemorezeta) and Donegal Lights (Air Force Blues/Maid of Ulster) and shot clear to win by nearly 3 lengths.

Congratulations to all connections and a special mention to the loyal group of owners who made the trek to Gosford to enjoy the win. I’m sure there is more to come from the promising Aramis.
