Storm Front

The Sportsman Weekend - - Front Page -

TWO fu­ture im­mor­tals - the Mel­bourne Storm’s Billy Slater and Cameron Smith - are set for some off sea­son joy when the horse they part-own, Ki­wia, tack­les to­mor­row’s Listed Bal­larat Cup (2200m).

The Dar­ren Weir-trained son of the un­beaten Re­set, has won six his 21 races in­clud­ing the Group 3 Coongy Cup and has placed in Bris­bane and Bendigo Cups.

The geld­ing didn’t have a lot of luck when held up for a run in the straight in the Group 3 Eclipse Stakes at Sandown last week and should have fin­ished much closer.

He is a big chance to atone to­mor­row.
