PROMISING four-year-old Gea Force has taken a while to make his mark but in Hobart today he left no doubt he has come to terms with being a racehorse.

With top jockey Stephen Maskiell aboard Gea Force showed good early speed to lead and when let down in the home straight he powered clear and won without being fully extended.

He bit the line well clear of Red Bently with Kong of Gondor a close-up third.

Trainer Mark Ganderton said it had been a long wait for the gelding’s owners but the patience shown has reaped great rewards.

Gea Force (Tough Speed-Gehenna) is owned and raced by Darren Moss, Marilyn Glenister, Christine Kannenieks, Tom Pender, Tara Keilty, Trevor Wright, Louis Dalby, John McKenna and the Are You There syndicate managed by Michael Felgate and Brent Crawford.

It was Gea Force’s second win in the space of 10 days having scored a similar win in Launceston under lights on May 20.
