ON THE RISE: NEW KENT & PRICE GELDING CONTINUES TO IMPRESS

Mick Price and Michael Kent will have been happy with events on Boxing Day after seeing one of there juniors getting off to a flyer in the Ken Sturt Handicap at Caulfield.

Price and Kent have produced a few handy three year olds in recent years and it looks like they’re onto another belter in Ayrton. 

Running only his second start for the stable the bay gelding lived up to expectation as jockey Jamie Kah was pilot Ayrton to a 5 length victory under just hands and heels in the home straight. 

After the race Price was understandably bullish declaring Ayrton “a Group horse”.

“He’s a group horse coming but he’ll go to the paddock now and we’ll have a think about what to do with him in the autumn,” Price said.

The punters seemed to be on board with Price’s assessment even with the rise in grade after his price on the day shifted from $1.65 to $1.55 before the jump. 

“Each race is a test, it’s a very big effort to go up in class and distance at his second start and to do that,” Price said.

“I just thought (when) saddling him up in the mounting yard, pre-race, behind the gates, stressy, lightened off, and for him to still get challenged - I saw Teo (Nugent on Tanker) kicking up on the fence and three-deep for the first four or five hundred metres - he did relax midrace to a point.

“But for him to work away and run that time obviously he’s a group horse coming. I thought it was an outstanding win.”

As Price mentioned, Ayrton will now head to the paddock while they assess potential avenues and while the Autumn racing may come to soon we may well see him back on the track sooner rather than later.
