After two impressive trials Cool Jakey (Pierro/Cool Snitzel) headed to Warwick Farm, Wednesday 22ndFebruary 2023 for his race day debut in race 2, the Drinkwise Plate over 1200m.
Ridden by Apprentice Jockey Tyler Schiller, he jumped well from barrier 3. Nursed along, he found himself in second place, just to the outside of the leader. Not phased by the heavy conditions he held his position around the turn but headed for home once in the straight. At the 300m mark he took up the lead and duly won, much to the delight of his ownership group, the TRL NSW Tycoons.
This 3-year-old-gelding has such a relaxed nature and laid-back way about him, yet when in a contest has the same competitive streak as his sire, Pierro. He was selected by bloodstock guru Mick Malone and purchased at the 2021 Magic Millions Yearling Sale held at the Gold Coast from Newhaven Park’s draft.
Congratulations to the ownership group, may Cool Jakey provide many more thrills to come.
