Ruud Awakening An Excitement Machine

Ruud Awakening stamped herself as one of the horses to beat in The Karaka Million on the 27th of January at Ellerslie with a soft win in the Countdown To Karaka two-year-old handicap at Ellerslie today.

Carrying the big impost of 59 kilos for a two-year-old filly and giving all of her rivals weight, she led from the outside barrier and kicked away in the home straight. She out three lengths on the field and jockey Jason Waddell was able to ease her up close to the line for a soft win. She is a filly of untapped potential and is exciting to watch when she accelerates away from a field.

She will next race in the $1 Million Karaka Million on the 27th of January where she is likely to be joined by Go Racing’s Charlestown who is also on track for the race. She looks to be a bright chance in the race for her owners the Almighty Dawn syndicate.
