Columbias Deejay - Set for the Vicbred Super Series
Life is about to get tougher for the handy harness racing performer Columbias Deejay.
Racing in ultra-consistent fashion this season, Columbias Deejay has been set for the rich Vicbred Super Series following his victory at Geelong yesterday.
Pleased with the four-year-old’s progress, trainer David Magri believes the Bacardi Lindy gelding is capable of making his way into the Final.
The $60,000 decider is scheduled to be run at Tabcorp Park Melton on July 3 as part of a stellar weekend, which will see 12 Group Ones conducted at the venue across two nights.
“He has come along really well this season and is capable of mixing it with some of the better ones in his age,” Magri said. “Don’t get me wrong, I’m not saying he will come out and win the Final, but he is good enough to get into it.
“Once you’re in the race you never know what might happen.
“He’s certainly capable of winning a heat, so that’s the way we will head. The heats are still a few weeks away, so I will give him another start or two before then, including Melton next Friday night.”
With Magri in the cart during his latest win, Columbias Deejay led throughout from three to score by eight-and-a-half metres from Tommy Kay, with Tawonga South a metre-and-a-half away third.
“Once he got to the front I knew they wouldn’t run him down,” Magri said. “He was down in class on what he has been racing against, so I felt he would be hard to beat.”
