KOBESTAR CATCHES THE EYE AT KEMBLA


KOBESTAR made an eye-catching debut for his new co-trainers Robert and Luke Price yesterday, finishing runner-up in a highly encouraging return to the racetrack for the first time since May.


With Team Price based at Kembla Grange, home comforts brought out the best in our speedy son of Star Witness as he finished a length behind the odds-on favourite in the Benchmark 64 Handicap.


Despite not being fully wound up, KOBESTAR hit the line very nicely under in-form apprentice jockey Brock Ryan to collect a handy cheque for $6,000.


It was KOBESTAR’s first run over 1000m and given he will be better suited as he steps up in distance (his maiden win was over a mile at Kembla Grange), it was very pleasing to see him hold his own at the shorter trip.
