Taiko Boom Impressive At Doomben

Nov 23, 2016

Stable newcomer Taiko Boom delivered his first win for his owners at Doomben on the 23rd of November. The lightly raced Drumbeats gelding had placed his two previous starts for the stable despite racing a little greenly and this time stepped out with a lot more confidence. The 4yo settled well just off the pace finding the lead at the top of the straight and ferociously fought off the challengers to win by a nose. Credit also to Jockey Jeff Lloyd who rode a smart race throughout, holding out the favourite in the early stages and skipping off the rails at the right time for a perfectly timed run to the line.

Taiko Boom is raced by Mr R M Lapointe, Mr D Boehm and Mr A Cheung.
