THUNDER PEAKS AT SANDOWN

A little break and a set of blinkers helped Thunder Peak to victory at Sandown this evening.

Mike Moroney gave Thunder Peak a freshen-up following her last start and added blinkers to help the daughter of Vancouver focus ahead of her start in the benchmark 64 handicap for three-year-old fillies over 1300m.

The head gear, plus a lovely patient ride from Jamie Kah, had the desired effect as Thunder Peak finished best of all to win.

“I thought there was a bit of merit to the win, she had to do it the hard way,” Moroney said. “She was posted three deep from the barrier but Jamie kept her balanced and in a rhythm and didn’t panic.

“We had targeted this race and she did looked suited, it was just the awkward barrier she had to overcome.

“Thunder Peak helped her with a strong finish and it’s good to see her begin to fulfill the promise she has shown us.

“We’ve always had a decent opinion of her, we’ve just had to be patient and she’s rewarded us. I’m sure she can go on with it from here.”
