A first up win? Absolutely!

Promising three-year-old Absolutely Maybe may have been friendless in the betting when resuming at Sale on Thursday - but he won like a short priced favourite!

Drifting back to the rear from a wide gate, the lightly raced gelding - having his first run since a maiden victory at Ballarat last November - had little luck in running but really wanted to find the line.
Badly held up approaching the turn, Absolutely Maybe had a wall of horses in front of him in the straight. Not to be deterred, jockey Mark Zahra patiently awaited a run and when able to get to the outside, the horse really motored.
"He burst through!" said Zahra who was impressed with the style of the victory - "he really showed a great turn of foot."
"As soon as I got out I had the covered," he added - "considering that he will be getting over a bit more ground he did a really good job."
Raced by the GG Syndicate (manager Gerard Peterson) and Owen Glenn, Absolutely Maybe - a $100,000 Easter sale graduate selected by Paul Moroney - is a son of Danzero and the Gr.3 mare Natural Woman.

Michael Moroney could not have been more pleased with the win - "he is a lot stronger this time around," he said - pointing out that his debut campaign was an educational one.

"He won like a good horse."
