Nathan’s Courage, the horse named after the late jockey Nathan Berry, looks set to win again tomorrow night in the opening race at Gloucester Park.
Part-owned by champion jockey Tommy Berry and named in honour of his twin brother, online bookmaker sportsbet.com.au has no doubt about the quality of the pacer and has the two-year-old as a $1.60 favourite.
Nathan’s Courage, who carries the 4tracks 4kids colours, won the Western Australian heat of the Breeders Crown.
He is $31 to win the Australasian final for colts and geldings and $31 to win a Group 1 this year or 2016.
“Tommy bought into the horse because it was by Courage Under Fire and he wanted a horse to remember Nathan by. It appears the family is going to get plenty of joy out of the gelding, he won impressively on debut and is tipped to have a bright future,’’ said sportsbet.com.au’s Will Byrne.
