Too Fast And Furious

May 12, 2017

The Dean Binaisse trained Fast And Furious was exactly that at Cranbourne on Friday night, claiming his break-through victory in the Maiden Plate over 1400m with Jamie Mott in the saddle.

Fast And Furious was fair away but wasn't held up out of the gates and eased up to sit behind the leaders. He was given an easy time sitting third throughout running before being taken around the two leaders at the turn. He surged forward and took the lead half way down the straight and was able to hold on to the fast finishing Sir Winston.

Jamie Mott, who retained the ride after a last start third placing, rode him a bit differently saying after the race "I thought the other day he was going to win quite easily and he sort of pulled up on me, today I waited as long as I could and I knew I had Waterhouse's covered at the top of the straight and I had to sort of get going once i got deep in the straight.

"I was a little worried when that horse come out wide because my bloke hit the front and did wobble around a bit and I think he sort of felt him coming and picked up another gear.

"The thing is too I think he has nice ability because he had the field stone cold on the bridle so when you take into account he can do that he has obviously got a fair bit of ability there."

The three-year-old colt is by Pressday and is out of the Marscay mare, No Vice. No Vice is now the dam of six winners and is a half sister to the Listed winning Franjelica.

"He has always been a colt with plenty of promise and has always shown a lot of ability but has been reluctant to finish his races off from either immaturity or having his mind on other things," said Dean Binaisse

"This was his last chance and failure meant gelding was inevitable but he has avoided that at this stage.

"He has excellent set of heart and lungs he will easily get out to 1600 maybe further so we are looking forward to getting him out to a bit of a trip."

Fast And Furious was a $60,000 purchase by 888 Racing at the 2015 Magic Millions March Yearling Sale and is owned by Brett and Lea Davies who are long time clients of the stable.
