The admirably consistent Blitzing sealed a Tony Cruz double when landing section one of the Class 3 Matheson Handicap (1200m) under Karis Teetan. The four-year-old followed stablemate Bullish Brother’s win under Matthew Poon in the Class 5 opener.
“The time wasn’t impressive but I think he still has a bit of improvement in him,” Cruz said of Blitzing after the gelding nailed his third win at start 12. “He has a racing mind now and he’s much more professional.
“He’s a Class 3 horse, he’s no superstar, but he’s been consistent. What I like about him is his size and his conformation, he has a very strong body, a good sprinting frame and he can take his races.”
Blitzing, a son of Jimmy Choux, was purchased by Upper Bloodstock out of Seaton Park's 2016 New Zealand Bloodstock Ready To Run draft. -HKJC
