King Pulse goes oh so close in Gr.1 sprint


It was so nearly an even bigger day for the Moroney stable on Saturday, a couple of races before Monaco Consul's exciting Derby victory the lightly raced three-year-old King Pulse running his heart out in the Gr.1 Coolmore Stud Stakes.
Having only his third start - having won in easy style at Geelong and Caulfield before taking this demanding rise in class - the handsome chestnut had to do a bit of work to get across from barrier 15 but when the whips were cracking he was right there in the thick of things.
Forced to make his run a little early - the horse he was following tiring, King Pulse hit the lead a little sooner than jockey Mark Zahra had hoped but he gave his all.
"He just kept fighting and fighting!" Zahra said, disppointed to have got beaten but thrilled with the effort of the horse.
"He is going to be a superstar," he said more than once - and who would argue on the strength of his record so far?

Beaten a mere nose by the classy and more experienced filly Headway (conceding her 2kg), King Pulse was gallant in defeat and the future looks bright!
