"Extremely bright career..."

Taken from Luke Oliver Racing website:

"Today’s winner has us very excited for the future with the colt OnToff OfThe World landing his maiden at Echuca.

His track rider has had this colt marked from the first day they galloped and he may well prove right after he landed his maiden with ease at his second race outing. Racing in the Rosemont Silks he is part owned by the Stud and our mates Bill and Nick and I'm tipping he is at the start of an extremely bright career.

We paid $80,000 for him ,as a type he was a stand out, we were fans of his father as a racehorse and the dam line is veritable whose who of German staying form. He still isn't quite sure what the caper is all about and he is a prep away from being the horse we believe he can be but for now he has us believing he will be smart.

To Mitho, thanks for letting me wear you down to buy him, you guys have been brilliant to train for, first horse and first winner for the stable.

If he pulls up well we will let him take his chance in something better but in time I'm telling you this boy will win a very nice race somewhere.

Thrilled we are getting success for the pressure we imposed on ourselves last season. We put our hands up for horses of this calibre and we now hope we can reward those who loyally followed us and wrote the cheques.

I cannot express how exciting it is to have "nice" horses to train and even this current crop of two-year-olds are already putting their hands up screaming I can gallop.
