Back To Back Wins For Pizarro

Pizarro scored back to back wins when taking out the Class 6 Plate over 1200m at Ipswich on Wednesday. The 5YO All Too Hard gelding continued his good form after saluting at the same track and distance three weeks prior when having his first start for trainer Tony Gollan. 

Jumping from barrier 2 in the 9 horse field, Pizarro settled midfield on the fence for jockey James Orman who has been aboard for all his Queensland outings this preparation.

"I ended up a little bit further back than what I wanted" commented Orman after the win. "The horse in front of me was getting held up so I opted to come out wide and get going- i was on the best horse in the race and that showed late."

Trainer Tony Gollan was full of praise for Pizarro's efforts "He had to do it a little bit tougher second-up and he really doesn't like that tight turning track at Ipswich." Gollan explained to the owners post-race. "Once he balanced up, he really savaged the line and he's brimming with confidence at the moment."

Pizarro will now make his way back to Saturday metropolitan company with Tony eyeing off a Class 6 over 1200m on QLD Oaks Day at Eagle Farm in a fortnight.
