Trainer happy for birthday greetings to Keep On Coming

Keep On Coming gave Matamata trainer Pam Gerard, co-trainer of the Ballmyore NZ stable, a welcome birthday present on Saturday and helped her reach a milestone 100 training wins.

The birthday gift was no surprise, the trainer confident with the Shamoline Warrior mare she trains in partnership with Mike Moroney.

Having her eighth start, Keep On Coming won for the second time and had solid form leading into the Te Rapa 1600m event.

Gerard wasn't letting on what number birthday she was celebrating, but was willing to predict a bright future for the mare.

"She's a good doer and it's taken a while to get her fit, but things are starting to click with her and Sam's [apprentice jockey Sam Weatherley's] claim helped," Gerard said.

"We've always had a bit of time for her," said Ballymore racing manager Nick Fairweather. "We will probably keep her to 1600m races for now but I think she will eventually get over ground."

She was a $30,000 Karaka Festival Yearling Sale purchase by Paul Moroney. He shares ownership with Gerard Peterson. The pair also shared in the ownership of Melbourne Cup hero Brew, another Moroney purchase.

The stable also produced Fortaleza at Te Rapa for third behind Babe in the maiden 3-year-old 1200m.

"It was a good fresh-up run," Fairweather said. "Hopefully she can progress towards some black type races."
