Hes A Hammer put in a flawless performance to take out the Aldebaran Park Vicbred Home Grown Classic three-year-old colts and geldings final on Saturday night.
Hes A Hammer scored by 2.8 metres from Hephaestus Phoenix with a gap back to Sir Eros in third as the race panned out perfectly for reinsman Josh Dickie.
Dickie and Hes A Hammer jumped from gate one and opted to sit just behind Hephaestus Phoenix who took up the lead and the reinsman could not have been happier.
"It just worked out perfectly," Dickie told reporters after the race. "One of those races where you couldn’t script it any better. They ran even enough time, when I was turning around the (last) corner he was just travelling so well. You could just tell he was going to pick them up pretty quick."
Dickie had nothing put praise for his charge and is no doubt there is much more to come from him as he continues to grow.
"He’s a lovely gaited trotter, he’s got lovely cruising speed when you ask him to run," Dickie added. "Tonight it was just beautiful, he’s lovely to drive, he sits off the bit, you only have to put the stick on his tail and he responds to you.
"In 12 months’ time he’s the sort of trotter you’d like to see how he’s getting on, because he’s a very well put together horse. Potentially in the future this horse could be one of our Grand Circuit trotters."
