Empire Poised To Strike
Dec 09, 2018
Empire Liberty bounced back after not coming up last time in with an eye catching nose 2nd at Yarra Valley first up. He went missing over the winter months losing all form. Put down to a virus Empire Liberty turned the corner, brightened up in the coat and looked more like the promising horse that we saw this time last year that put together back to back wins. Coming off a good trial behind his stablemate Plot The Course the 4 year old son of Statue of Liberty went into the 1200m event nice and fresh. From the outside gate he was forced very wide throughout in the run and was entitled to knock up but despite the wide run he continued to run home strongly to narrowly miss. Good to see him back in form and he will head to the races most likely Saturday night at Cranbourne were he should be hard to beat.
