Horse Description:

"Mario" ran into all sorts of strife at Gosford on Anzac Day so we were really happy with his follow-up start at Kembla on Saturday 12th May. Racing over 1000m "Mario" (carrying some gear changes) kept his mind on the job and would have finished closer to the winner had a gap opened in the straight for him. Chelsea was very pleased with his attitude and the way he worked in the run.
