Jungle Edge Rules The Kingdom

By Brad Gray

Jungle Edge scored an emotional victory for trainer Mick Bell in the Group Three Star Kingdom Stakes (1200m) after he lost his wife to breast cancer six weeks ago.

The six-year-old proved his placing in the Group One Galaxy last week was no fluke where he was a close-up third to Russian Revolution and Redzel.

Jungle Edge ran his rivals into the ground

“I did have an angel on my shoulder,” said the Cranboune-based trainer.

“Life is funny thing. I wish Bev was here. All of the support I’ve had has been touching.

“He is a great horse. He is like a bloke who can go into a pub anywhere and say I’ll fight anyone in the bar. He gives it all every time!

“People want to think he is a wet tracker, alright, let them think that. He isn’t just a wet tracker though. He is a good horse, just a real good horse on a wet track.

“Dreams come true sometimes don’t they?”

Veteran hoop Kevin Forrester took no prisoners in the race, taking control from the start before booting clear to record a dominant 2L victory.

“He might be alright, he might be just starting to come good. We put the blinds on him today and took the blinkers off and he relaxed for me today and had that bit of kick,” said Forrester.

“Winning any race is a thrill whether it’s in the bush or the city but Mick and I have become friends. He’s had a bit of a bad trot but we all have that, you’ve got to punch through the brick wall and keep going.”
