If the debut run of Hit Reset at Bendigo two weeks ago was anything to go by, owners have a lot to look forward to.
Interesting back story with this horse. Brought as a weanling for pinhooking purposes by Princess Park and a syndicate of loyal owners, we prepared her for sale as a yearling and she was sold. The sale fell through, however, and we were left with her to race. After her debut run, I'm thinking this could be a blessing in disguise.
Trainer Brent Stanley has always had a good opinion of this filly since taking her on. After having plenty of education this preparation with four jump outs under her belt, Brent elected to give her one run before giving her a well deserved break.
Given she's a horse that has always indicted that she's going to be better with maturity expectations were low with the main objective to give Hit Reset a good race-day experience before tipping her out.
Racing over 1300 metres the two year old filly by Reset, jumped well and put herself in a good spot about 4 lengths off the leader. She made a long sustained run down the straight and finished fourth in what was a very encouraging run.
Brent has always felt that she'll be a horse that will get out over a longer trip so to race so well on debut was great for connections.
As with most Bendigo two year old races the field was strong. The winner of the race Spirit Medium has been placed in town and was a close up second in the $100,000 Elvestroem Classic the start prior.
Hit Reset is enjoying a short break and will be back racing late spring.
