Viribright’s talented 3-year-old colt, Matcha Latte (Maurice/Wayward) took out the first race, the Hyland Race Colours Handicap over 1300m, on the Kensington track today, Wednesday 10th August 2022.
Teaming up with his regular rider, Tom Sherry he jumped from barrier 6 to be handy in the running. Finding himself wide, Tom allowed the speed battle to continue upfront while easing Matcha Latte back a little. Still wide but travelling nicely, he moved up to the leaders’ outside on the turn. Taking up a narrow lead at the 200m mark and then extending to win by nearly half a length.
Congratulations to the Owners, Viribright Racing. Matcha Latte looked very impressive, and it will be exciting to see what the future may hold for him.
