Malachi Crunch had his first outing to the river this week and he was perfect. He confidently led the way through the water, followed by Georgian Court and Depreciation (video above).
We were very pleased with Malachi Crunch’s effort in the Narooma Town Plate, especially since it was his first race over 1300m. He has always been a short distance sprinter but as he gets older, he is learning to settle and stretch out the distances he can race over.
At trackwork, Malachi Crunch always does the bare minimum and barely makes it around to the exit before stopping. His rider, Maddy, filmed the video below from her helmet camera on Saturday morning showing the effort needed to make it the last 200m in a slow canter. Sometimes it is hard to believe he has won 5 races.
