Weir Wild About Nature Strip

Tuesday, 3rd July 2018

Meanwhile, trainer Darren Weir says boom sprinter Nature Strip is every bit as talented as proven Group 1 winner Brave Smash, reports racingnsw.com.au. Nature Strip has dominated discussion about the world's richest turf race - The Everest - since he resumed with a brilliant 4.5 length win at Flemington ten days ago in which he covered the 1100m in a near-track record time of 1:02:26 with a final 600m split of 32.58 seconds. Weir expects Everest slot-holders to come calling after the 4YO runs in the Listed Creswick Series Final (1200m) at Flemington this Saturday. "He's as good a horse as Brave Smash," said Weir. "I can't see why someone wouldn't be looking at him but next week will answer a few questions running over 1200 metres."
