David Jolly: Behemoth Will Do His Best to Bag Elusive Goodwood Win
SOUTH AUSTRALIA, Australia — David Jolly has confirmed Behemoth’s participation in the forthcoming The Goodwood Handicap 2021 competition. He described his Goolwa runner as a tough racehorse. Jolly also remarked that it was fair time for Behemoth to spell from today until the spring.
The racehorse trainer shared that his team had had luck running Penny Banger and All Too Hard’s son in Adelaide before and heading into the galloper’s competitions into the spring. Jolly pointed out that if Behemoth stays in sound health, his team will look at providing the racehorse with a run or two with The Goodwood Handicap 2021 competition as the chief target.
Horse racing tips and information website Just Horse Racing indicated that The Goodwood this year will take place on Saturday, May 15, at the Morphettville Racecourse. This 1,200-metre set weights tilt awards $750,000 as prize money to the winning team. Behemoth is a Dual Group One racehorse. His connections believe that giving him a brief freshen-up is a sound idea before providing him with his opportunity to claim an elusive victory in The Goodwood.
In The Goodwood Handicap 2019, Behemoth concluded the race as a runner-up, with the Tony McEvoy-trained Despatch, declared as the winner. The now five-year-old bay gelding was at merely his seventh race start before coming from last to claim fourth in the Group One horse racing contest in 2020.
According to the report posted online by Australian horse racing information and news website Racenet, Jolly had been weighing up the likelihood of going straight to the spring with the talented Behemoth. However, the racehorse trainer has reportedly chosen to provide his stable star his third try of being victorious in The Goodwood.
In the spring, Behemoth went on to grab back-to-back Group Ones in the Memsie Stakes and Sir Rupert Clarke Stakes at Caulfield. Then, he finished tenth in The Everest. In The Everest 2021 wagering, the runner is presently $51. Earlier this month, Behemoth took a brief break following a gutsy run to finish third behind Russian Camelot and Mugatoo at The Valley’s $5-million All-Star Mile.
Jolly shared that he felt delighted with his sprinter’s stunning performance. He said that Behemoth, whose total prize money at the time of writing is $2,514,630 per Racenet, had pulled up well in the All-Star Mile after a strong performance. Jolly also relayed that his top-performing sprinter was at the top of his game in that sporting event. He affirmed that his group is pleased with the manner Behemoth had come through the competition.
