Sea Ea­gle’s star well backed

-

ZEE Dana has been strongly sup­ported as he bids to main­tain his un­beaten record in tonight’s Tat­low Stakes for ju­ve­nile colts and geld­ings at Mel­ton.

Part owned by Manly full­back Brett Stewart, Zee Dana won by 28m on de­but last month.

He has since won well at Shep­par­ton and im­pressed pun­ters enough for them to back him in from $2.60 to $2.10 from his pole­mark­ing draw.

“He is a high-pro­file horse and the media might put the pres­sure on, but we don’t let that worry us, we just let the horse do the talk­ing,” co­trainer and driver Nathan Jack said.

“I ac­tu­ally find it (the in­ter­est) great be­cause if you knew the horse, he’s got a bit of a per­son­al­ity him­self, he’s a very friendly horse and he’s got a lot of char­ac­ter.

“We just love him at home and our job is re­ally just to keep him suc­ceed­ing, which we’ll try and do this week­end at Tab­corp Park.”

Among Zee Dana’s ma­jor ri­vals are Code Black ($2.20 to $2.50), Born To Rock­n­roll ($9 to $10) and Christ­mas Jolt ($8.50 to $8).
