EXPLOSIVE JACK LANDS THE TREBLE

The ATC DERBY, The Tasmanian Derby and now the TAB South Australian Derby. Explosive Jack made it an incredible treble of Derby wins after destroying the field at Morphettville on Saturday.

Explosive Jack wins to make Derby Treble

The son of Jakkalberry came into the race as favourite but drifted out to $4 by the jump after heavy backing for VRC Oaks winner Personal.

However there was nothing for favourite backers to worry about as the Maher and Eustace trained runner sustained a tough run to kick clear in the straight and run the Quinella alongside stablemate Let’s Karaka Deel.

Jockey John Allen was once again on board the 3 year old as he was for the previous 2 Derby wins and jumping from barrier 10 he had to settle in midfield after tracking wide early. 

Also amongst the favourites was Cindy Alderson trained Liquero who was looking for her maiden Group 1 victory. The Cranbourne conditioner would have been full of optimism as her runner barged from the box seat to hit the lead on the bend.

However it wasn’t long before the aptly named Explosive Jack was about to go with a bang as Allen moved him into contention under minimal riding.

With 200m left to run the Maher and Eustace runner was home with only his stablemate causing slight concern but couldn’t land a glove on the three time Derby winner. 

The win caps off an amazing few months for the Maher and Eustace training partnership having taken Explosive Jack to 8 different tracks in 4 different states whilst picking up 3 Derby Wins. 

Explosive Jack also goes into the record books as the first runner since Stormy Rex back in 1977-78 to win three Derby’s in a season.
