I Might Be A Stayer
Mar 05, 2016
The key to I Am Bacchus may have been found with the son of explosive sprinter and now super stalion I Am Invincible looking like a stayer. Labelled enigmatic but ofter referred to in less polite manner I Am Bacchus appears to be leaning towards the stoutness in his pedigree. Thought of as a get back run on sprinter I Am Bacchus stepped from 1200m to a mile at Kilmore last start coming from the rear of the field to get up and dead heat for second. Michael has reached into the bag of tricks which has included regurly schooling over jumps a quick back up after trialling and the addition of winkers. On his last run jockey Mark Pegus suggested that he will get further. Another 1600m run beckons for I Am Bacchus before stepping up in trip and given he looks like a stayer he has earned a reprieve aften been put on noyice after some inconsistent performances.
