Does He Know Breaks Through

Oakland Park three-year-old Does He Know defied a late betting drift ($3.20 to $4.20) to lead all-the-way for a stylish win in The Pinnacles Racing Carnival Maiden (1100m) at Northam yesterday.

Ridden by Joesph Azzopardi, the son of Demerit travelled boldly in running and was able to hold off Parlons ($5.50) by just under a length on the line to bring up his maiden career victory.

The Oakland Park-bred gelding flashed ability when winning barrier trials as a pre-Christmas two-year-old and looks like a talented type who could progress through the grades.

Congratulations to all connections.
