Shepparton's Russell and Nathan Jack will be striving to win the Bathurst Gold Crown tomorrow night with promising two-year-old pacer Cosa Nostra.GUS UNDERWOOD March 28, 2014 4:15am
Bathurst will hold the focus of district trots fans tomorrow night when Shepparton trainer Russell Jack and his star reinsman son Nathan try to win one of Australia’s most prestigious two-year-old races, the $100
The Jacks are pinning their faith in lightly-raced Cosa Nostra to win the feature for two-year-old colts and geldings over 1730
Cosa Nostra, who was the quickest of the heat winners last Saturday night, has drawn the inside of the second row.
The Jack pacer is drawn behind the Bernie Hewitt-trained and driven Allnight Raid, another of the heat winners, who is unbeaten in his three starts.
The other impressive heat winner Artistic Flite, to be driven by John McCarthy, has come up with the extreme outside second-row draw, which is good news for the Shepparton-trained pacer.
Cosa Nostra was having only his fourth trip to the races when he spread-eagled his rivals in his heat of the lucrative series.
But Russell Jack had a word of warning about Cosa Nostra going into tomorrow night’s race.
He actually thinks Artistic Flite, despite his bad draw, may have a class factor over the rest of his rivals.
‘‘I would hope my bloke can settle behind the leader or three back and earn some money, but the other bloke (Artistic Flite) may be too good,’’ Jack said from Bathurst yesterday.
Jack is well qualified to give his opinion on the race given he won it previously and has also claimed two Gold Tiara finals for two-year-old fillies.
