Ride High made his return to the races last Saturday night at Melton and he certainly made it a memorable one!
The Clayton Tonkin trained son of Art Major put in a performance which was simply breathtaking.
He led early and then proceeded to run his last two quarters in 26.9 and 25.8! The winning margin was just shy of 10 lengths. (Watch Replay)
His last half of 52.7 was by far the quickest ever recorded at Melton.
It was a performance which really emphasised just how good Ride High is and how much we all have to look forward to.
Bred and raced by Peter Gleeson, Ride High is out of the Live Or Die mare All The Magic and thus a half brother to Rocknroll Magic.
Note: Ride High was one of three winners for Art Major on the night.
Mirragon put in an excellent performance to beat the older horses, while Pur Dan broke through for his first win on Australian soil with a 1:54.9 win.
