The speedy Troika (Russian Revolution/Novel Dancer) travelled to Goulburn, Thursday 16th February 2023 to compete in race 4 the Doyles Seafood Restaurant Maiden Handicap over 1000m.

The 3-year-old bay gelding found himself in 4th position after jumping. Maintaining his composure throughout, he almost came wide to find clear air but didn’t have to. The field scattered on the turn and a gap appeared miraculously before him. Making the most of the opportunity he darted through the opening, put paid to the opposition and duly won by nearly 3 lengths.

Congratulations to the ownership group, Louis and jill Mihalyka and the team at Laurel Oak Bloodstock.
