Judicious Just Too Good

Jul 07, 2018

It did not take long for the well related three-year-old Judicious to break his maiden - and he did so in easy fashion at Bendigo on Friday.

Having just his fourth start and his second this time in, the son of Snitzel enjoyed a lovely trail from a good draw and was always travelling like the winner for Ethan Brown.

Getting off heels early in the straight, Judicious was quickly chasing the leader, hitting the lead at the 150m and getting clear to salute by 1 3/4 lengths despite racing greenly.

"He is still very raw," Brown reported, "but he travelled well behind them and showed a nice type of foot when chasing."

"Though when he got to the front he was inclined to stop!"

Still learning his trade, Judicious was not at his absolute best on the going according to Brown- "he is better suited on a track a bit softer than today which gives more merit to his win."

"Once he learns the caper he will be much better."

Raced by his breeders Michael Everett, Neil Hoar and James Jackson with Michael Kent, Judicious is a son of the Gr.2 Stan Fox winner Rare Insight - also dam of the Group One mare Steps In Time.

Served last spring by Foxwedge having foaled a More Than Ready filly in late October, Rare Insight is one of nine winners produced by the terrific mare Escada, stakes placed dam of dual Group One winners Vision And Power and Glamour Puss and of the triple Listed winner Escadaire.
