Young Gun Likes The Goldfields by The Gurkha
The comeback of talented apprentice Ned Colbeck has not been lost on the Goldfields racing fans with the young two kilogram claiming apprentice, riding a winner at each of the meetings at the Kalgoorlie Boulder Race Club.
After a busy day riding horses for his master Dan Morton the Belmont Park trials, Coldbeck suggested that riding winners consistently in Kalgoorlie was one of his goals for this year.
“The Kalgoorlie track has never raced better and the fields up there this year have been outstanding. Dan Morton has a strong team of horses in work and getting rides for stables like Dean Nazzari are also very important for me.” Coldbeck told The Gurkha
Since returning from near career ending injuries, Coldbeck continues to ride up a storm winning races at Ascot and Pinjarra to compliment his two Kalgoorlie wins.
The young apprentice was off the scene for almost a year after falling from Zeda Mak at Pinjarra in March 2011 and the dedication has shown to get his career back on track is deserving of his recent successes.
When asked if he was trialling anything of note at Belmont Park, Morton was quick to reply-“Yes, Ned-he is my best at the trials by far!”
