Racing: It was an adrenaline rush at dawn

There must have been a feeling of satisfaction — or a kind of “rush” — in the Bruce Marsh yard when ADRENALINE finished his workout with so much zest at Kranji yesterday morning.

Taken out for a spin by Corey Brown, the youngster ran the 600m in 36.2. He was striding out nicely and pulled up looking in mint condition.

Adrenaline, who is by fashionable sire Align, stamped himself as a horse to watch in 2014 when he turned in a more than decent run in his debut on Jan 3.

In that race, the three-year-old came up against a mighty competent field of youngsters and was hardly disgraced when he finished fourth behind the all-the-way winner Eagle Storm.

If you recall, Eagle Storm finished a good second to Lucky Mission on Sunday.

Also in that Weight-For-Age “Initiation” were D’Artangan, Darci Charmer, Ami and The Mighty Thor. Yet, at the finish of that 1,200m sprint, Adrenaline was just two lengths behind the winner.

Later, the Stewards’ report stated that the New Zealand-bred had a tendency to lay inwards when racing up the home straight.

Adrenaline comes up against another smart field on Saturday. His rivals include Oscar Racing Stable’s Gene, trainer Patrick Shaw’s Gold Line, Laurie Laxon’s youngster Tongariro and that exciting filly My Barbarella.

So, it is by no means a shoo-in for the young runner but, one thing’s for certain, Trainer Marsh has his charge in tip-top condition for the 1,400m trip and it will be a good thing to have Adrenaline in your betting plan. On yesterday’s show, he’s ready for a mighty big effort.
