JUNGLE ROVER WELL DESERVED WIN IN THE WEST

Sep 05, 2012

Congratulations to Nick Cox and the team in WA with the well deserved win today of Jungle Rover in the 2100 mtr event at Belmont. Well ridden by crack Perth jockey William Pike who summed up the race early taking Jungle Rover to the front and being too strong for his rivals in the run home.

Jungle Rover is having his first campaign in Perth after doing all his previous racing out of Mornington stable. Tony in congratulating all involved paid particular thanks to the owners of Jungle Rover in saying "I really appreciate the support of the owners in their willingness to try the option to race the horse in WA. They should be thrilled with todays result adding the victory to his maiden win at Donald back in February following a strong run at Sale where he beat AJC Derby winner Ethiopia into second place."
