Our Kaboom explodes at Traralgon
Jun 24, 2014
Our Kaboom implemented the lessons learned on debut to post a convincing maiden victory at Traralgon.
The Kaphero colt started his career with an excellent effort at Seymour but a moderate beginning hampered his chances when third to the subsequent city placegetter Callahan on May 26.
Our Kaboom struck a heavy track in the Latrobe City Maiden Plate (1150m) at Traralgon but the youngster handled the soft ground comfortably with the aid of experienced jockey Lincoln Coffey.
Our Kaboom’s fast start allowed Coffey to take him straight to the front to control the $15,000 contest from the outset.
Coffey rated Our Kaboom perfectly in the middle stages to have his mount primed for a strong finish in the testing conditions.
Our Kaboom worked through his gears early in the straight but always had the race in control over the final 300 metres before he drew clear late to break his maiden by a convincing 2-¼ lengths.
Super VOBIS bonuses pushed Our Kaboom’s Traralgon haul to $15,300 while his overall stakes tally leapt to more than $17,000 after his success.
Our Kaboom fetched $80,000 as a yearling but looks certain to recoup that amount and much more during his career.
Congratulations to all involved with Our Kaboom’s brilliant maiden win.
