TRAINER-DRIVER Barrie Rattray is contemplating an interstate trip with Who Is Hardeen following his impressive win at Tattersall’s Park in Hobart last Sunday night.

Who Is Hardeen was forced to tail out to last from his outside-front barrier (7) but Rattray was content to sit back and bide his time on the three-year-old gelding.

Nobeer Nofear led from gate three and led comfortably at his first-up assignment for Gary Bishop but he started to feel the pinch turning for home and that’s when the back-markers made their moves.

Stoner Rainbow and Rockbank Dancer swept up to take the lead but they had no answer to Who Is Hardeen’s powerful finish.

Who Is Hardeen, owned by Mark Panton, has raced seven times this season for two wins and three minor placings with his overall career stats showing his consistency with five wins and seven minor prizes from 19 starts.

Listen to what trainer-driver Barrie Rattray had to say about the win and what plans are in store for the three-year-old.
