A DUCK is the powerful BOBS 3yo son of talented second season sire PLUCK by MORE THAN READY.

His Dam GYPSY BATTALIA was an 8 time winner from 1400m to 2100m and was an improving type winning at Victorian Metro level over 2100m as a 6yo defeating numerous quality Metro winners including the Adelaide Cup winning stayer LACEY UNDERALL.

A DUCK'S siblings are all proven on the racetrack and include the Vic Metro winner and Listed placed LAZYAXL and 9 time winner THE CONQUEROR who was beaten 10.5L and 14.5L in his first 2 starts then won 4 races in his next prep as a 3yo and was still in great form as a 7yo.

If you watch all his runs and trials on www.racingnsw.com.au you will see he has fantastic early speed and set the pace in the class record time recorded in his Hawkesbury run.

A DUCK clearly has ability and looks suited to the front running country tracks available in NSW to take full advantage of his BOBS Bonus.

With only 2 Starts this prep he is primed and ready to continue racing.
