Talented 2yo gelding Gearstick provided his connections with tough victory at Pakenham on Friday en route to the Adelaide Magic Millions in March. Gearstick (or Billy as we know him at the stable) was tough in the concluding stages of the race and ridden perfectly by top apprentice rider Adam McCabe who was unfortunate to cop a suspension from the race. Steve and Ceri Jostlear from Ampulla Lodge who presented the Strategic colt at the sale last year were pleased to see their efforts evolve into what will be a very good horse for them. As well as this, there were many connections there on the day including Huw Lazaredes who flew in from Sydney just for the race. Congrats to all the partners of Billy and look forward to bigger and better things from this lovely horse.
