Youthful Jack has more wins coming over the Tasmanian Summer Carnival

Trainer Adam Trinder is looking to more wins over the Tasmanian Summer Carnival  with his new stable star Youthful Jack after securing the $90,000 WFA thetote.com.au Stakes at the TOTE Racing Centre in Launceston on Wednesday night.

Globetrotting New South Wales jockey Robert Thompson who has had multiple wins on the six year old, made the trip to Launceston to team up Youthful Jack’s new trainer.

“This is my first listed race win and it’s great to have done it for Ross, who is one of the gentlemen of racing,’ Trinder said.

Trinder was referring to Ross Stitt who is part owner and former trainer of Youthful Jack who won his first race in over two years at Wyong in December.

Youthful Jack has earned over $800,000 in prize money including Group and Listed races and Stitt was happy to target the weight for age races over the Tasmanian Summer Carnival.

“Hopefully, the horse can now go on and complete the weight-for-age treble in the Thomas Lyons and George Adams.

“If he does, Ross might let me give him a run in Melbourne on his way home,’ Trinder said.

Before the Wyong win on December 21 last year, Youthful Jack hadn’t entered the winner’s circle since May 2009 when he took out the Conrad Treasury Casino Brisbane 3yo Plate (1400m) in Brisbane. Sydney rider Corey Brown was aboard the gelding on that occasion.

Thompson, who had not been back to Tasmania since winning the 2006 Launceston Cup on Precise Timing, made it a feature race double by taking out the $30,000 Aceland Stud Thousand Guineas (1600m) on Gee Gee’s La Quita for trainer Stuart Gandy.

Youthful Jack settled just behind the leaders for Thompson and finished too strongly to score by a comfortable length over Rave Night ridden by David Piers with Motspur third with Stephen Maskiell.

Trinder, who trains out of Spreyton was very pleased to win his first listed race and hopes that his new stable star will claim more feature races over the Carnival.

The two races that Trinder has in mind for Youthful Jack are the WFA $100,000 Tatts Group Thomas Lyons Stakes (1400m) at Hobart on February 12 and the $100,000 Listed WFA Tatts Group George Adams Plate over 1600m at Launceston on February 22.

Thousand Guineas winner Gee Gee’s La Quita will also head to Hobart for the $100,000 Listed Strutt Stakes (2100m) for 3yo fillies on February 12 before retruning to Launceston for the $100,000 Listed  Food Services Tasmanian Oaks (2100m) ten days later.
