Trip To Africa has taken time to come to hand but has always shown that he had potential. A tall immature horse, there were problems with his gelding and he took time to recover. He has since grown into his frame and he started a short-priced favourite on debut at Holywoodbets Greyville yesterday. Anton Marcus had no hesitation in making early use, sitting up handy from the start.
Asked to run at the top of the straight, Trip To Africa still raced green but proved far too classy for the opposition. He is sure to come on from this win and gave Gary Tooch, Greg Blank, Larry Nestadt, Gary Piha, Jimmy Sarkis and Darryl Yutar their second winner in a week after High Voltage scored for them last Sunday.
