The tip arrived a bit late but it is worth noting. A few minutes after trainer John Wallace watched his debutant Shoot Out bolt-in by 5 1/2 lengths in the opening 2YO race at the Gold Coast, he declared him the best prospect he'd handled for a long time and Wallace is too experienced to be far off the mark.
“I thought he was really smart after his trial win, when he went the same time as the open class horses but you never know until they do it in a race.”
“I'd like to run him in the Sires' Produce next start if he gets a run and then the Gr.1 TJ Smith Stakes over the carnival”, concluded Wallace.
A first-crop son of 6-time Gr.1 winner High Chaparral, Shoot Out looks a fine prospect for the future following his debut win.
