Saarim Breaks Maiden

Feb 20, 2017

Fastnet Rock gelding Saarim, won the $30,000 Maiden Showcase Plate (1600m) in dominant fashion for Sheikh Mohammed bin Khalifa Al Maktoum at Goulburn on February 18.

Perfectly ridden by Nick Heywood, the pair travelled on the speed early to lead and never gave up the position for an impressive 1.5 length victory over El Vee Are.

“He’s taken a little while to come to hand but it’s great to get a win,” said co-trainer Paul Snowden.

“It’s only his third career start so we’ll continue to work through the grades slowly and map out some more winnable races.”
