Pricey Colt Spend kicked off his career with a win at Rosehill Gardens, but jockey Tommy Berry was careful about comparing him to boom stable mate Exceedance. And hence, upon being asked to compare the boom Team Hawkes-trained duo Spend and Exceedance, star jockey answered very cleverly.
“They are very different horses but for colts they do have the same temperament, they are very relaxed types and do whatever you ask,’’ Berry said after riding Spend to a debut win at Rosehill Gardens.
“It’s too early to be comparing them but they are both very promising,’’ further he said.
Spend, a $1.55 million Easter Yearling purchase, lived up the pre-race hype to make a winning debut in the Everest Carnival Handicap (1100m).
