SLIPPIN’ JIMMY’s first road trip was a successful one as the 3YO scored his second career win at Kilcoy on Friday.

After four outings on his home track, the chestnut gelding was sent on his travels and returned to the stables a winner after an impressive effort in the Benchmark 60 Handicap (1200m).

The son of Pariah had suffered interference at his previous start, but there were no such issues on this occasion as he pinged the lids and settled in a prominent position.

The runaway leader looked to have stolen a march, but SLIPPIN’ JIMMY knuckled down to his task and Ryan Wiggins even had the luxury of easing him down near the line as he prevailed by half-a-length.

“He’s still an immature horse but has a lot of ability,” said Wiggins.

“It was a big effort to finish as strongly as he did. He’s still six months away from working it out but he’s got a bright future.

“It was a good experience for him to come somewhere new, he acted up a bit in the yard but was sweet once I got him out onto the track. He got a bit edgy in the barriers because one of the horses next to him was acting up, but as soon as the gates opened he broke cleanly.

“I reckon he knows he’s good and once he learns to switch off, he should get out to seven furlongs. He was very patient today and we had to bide our time, but he didn’t over-race and got the job done really nicely in the end.”

Many congratulations to Mr Racing and all owners: Mr M W Cook, Mr K L Hill, Albury's Own, Mrs J Dahl, Ms S M Reguson, DVD Racing, Mr S N Travers, Mr M Speers, Mr S Dodds, Mr T J Brown, Mr G Doherty, Mr K C Bell and High Calibre Racing.
