HE’S only in the early stages of his career, but trainer Emma Stewart believes he is capable of reaching grand heights.
Successful at Ballarat last night, Ample Power stretched his tally to an imposing seven wins and a third from nine starts, with the record-breaking horsewoman predicting big things ahead for the son of Mach Three.
For now, Ample Power will continue his transition through the grades, which he is undertaking at a quick tempo.
“He’s a pretty talented pacer,” Stewart said. “I think he has the ability to go a long way.
“At this stage he’ll just keep racing through the classes and hopefully reached his full potential.
“He has only had the nine starts because he was a hard horse to get going, but he is making up for lost time.”
With Chris Alford holding the reins during his latest triumph, Ample Power worked to the lead from barrier three before cruising to a soft three-and-a-half metre win from No Bettertime, with Milady Denver two-and-a-half metres away third.
“He did it as easily as he liked,” Stewart said. “Chris barely moved behind him and he had plenty in the tank.
“He’s gone 1:56.3, with the last half in 56.3 seconds and he wouldn’t have blown out a candle as he came off the track.
“With more experience as he goes through the classes he should develop into a very nice type.”
