RIVER REWARD is the well related 5yo Vic winning, Metro placed son of REWARD FOR EFFORT who in his maiden victory was paying $1.26 due to his outstanding ability. He was ridden like a good thing and used his bulk to obtain clear running.

He has only had the 5 Vic starts for 1 x win, 1 x second 2 x thirds and 1 x fourth and has never been further than 2.45L of the winner.

He was extremely unlucky in his Moonee Valley race and couldn't get out when required. Watch the run you will see he definitely should have won the race.

River Reward is a good sized individual and although he has handled the tight tracks he has been racing on he looks a likely improver on the bigger circuits.
