Four On The Trot For Test The World

By Brad Gray At Rosehill Gardens

Test The World made it four straight wins in the Pro Rata ATC Membership On Sale Sprint (1200m) at Rosehill Gardens on Saturday, picking herself up off the canvas.

The progressive four-year-old mare looked as though she was going to be swallowed up by the chasing pack half way down the straight but she kept finding with the first five across the line finishing within 0.7L of one another.

“I don’t think they actually got past me but when you’ve got 200m to go and you’ve only got a neck you get a bit worried,” her jockey Jason Collett said upon dismounting.

Test The World had to dig deep

“She is probably better when she has got something to chase. She was vulnerable (from the front) in the two rides I had on her last preparation where she got run down so I was a wee bit worried today when they came up to me but it shows how much she has strengthened from prep to prep.

“She is putting a lovely record together and Bjorn (Baker) is placing her nicely through the grades and collecting good prize money along the way. Where to now though I’m not too sure.”

The win puts her hot on the heels of Zumbelia as the season’s top BOBs earner and also had punters drawing comparisons to Baker’s flagship mare Bonny O’reilly.

“She is very raw still and not quite Bonny but in saying that she is still on the way up. Her racing pattern is good, she handled the heavy track and is tough,” Collett said.

The Baker stable is in terrific form at the moment and have developed a handy knack of producing picket fences with their runners.

“It was a super win. Very, very tough and I question whether she was really comfortably in the ground,” Baker said.

“She looked like she was gone at the 200m and it’s not often they rally back like that. I’ve always had a lot of time for her and her sire Testa Rossa has been such a special sire for me.

“Henry Dwyers’ horse (Foreign Affair) is staying with me and it ran well too. I should have had the quinella really.”
