Well-performed winter galloper Taurus surprised his connections with his recent bold first-up showing under 60kg when he opened his campaign at Hastings.

The 11-time winner was caught three wide throughout and fought on gallantly for fourth in his first appearance for six months.

“We were over the moon, we didn’t think he was that forward – it was a great run,” co-trainer JJ Rayner said.

“He’ll run at New Plymouth on Saturday where he’ll get a bit of weight again, but he needs one more run before the Ag Challenge.”

Taurus won the Listed Ag Challenge Stakes (1600m) on his home track at Wanganui in 2016 after placing in the previous two editions and finished third last year.
