LIAM Birchley deals with third Karak Millions with Neptune's Spear, who landed on some good bets on Saturday to win the QTIS 2YO Handicap in Doomben.
Birchley paid $ NZ140,000 at this year's Karak Premier Yearling Sale, a hunting game where he had already found a lot of success.
New Zealand Bloodstock led a rich game for graduates in January, called Karaka Millions, which Birchley received earlier with Sister Havana in 2010 and Hardline (2015).
Birchley and Jockey Brad Stewart said that Neptune's Spear is still a lot of learning.
"It's still very green," Birchley said. "He was never left today, so you can see that he loses his step when he did it (Saturday), so let's hope it means a lot more improvements."
Neptune's Spear began as a sphere from machines, a factor that Stewart said is the key to winning the race.
"This is a great help when they come out as he did," said Stewart. "I did not know what to do with my legs when I let it go, and I'm sure that this race is improving greatly."
Neptune's Spear is the son of Super Easya, the Terravista half-brother and the Ball of Muscle, who began his career in New Zealand before becoming one of the best Singapore sprinter under the care of Michael Freedman. It's on the New Zealand Hallmark Stud.
Powerful closing suit Plumaro turned the tables on Saturday to Light Up Room. Plumaro settled down in her usual role as Jag Guthmann-Chester, but she created a wonderful sprint in a direct ride on a bike that was trained in Toowoomba, Barefoot and Light Up The Room.
