To Fast To Serious Sparkles
West Australian-bred four-year-old To Fast To Serious continues his rise towards the top and reinsman Aldo Cortopassi confidently predicts he will be a star of the future.
To Fast To Serious, prepared at Mt Helena by Ray Williams, was not extended in setting the pace and winning the 2536m RAC Members Save 5% Everyday at Retravision Pace by three lengths from Gran Chico and Sangue Reale at Gloucester Park on Friday night.
“He is untapped,” said Cortopassi. “I’d love to see him sitting on the good horses before reeling off one quarter at them. He’s explosive and if he gets a chance in the big races, they’ll know he’s there.
“His forte is his sit-sprint ability. He has that one devastating turn of foot. But when you get a barrier (like No. 1 tonight), you take advantage of it.”
To Fast To Serious dashed over the first three quarters of the final mile in 29.4sec., 29.2sec. and 29.2sec. before sprinting over the final 400m in 27.9sec. to win at a 1.57.7 rate.
To Fast To Serious is still comparatively inexperienced, with his 19 starts producing 13 wins and three seconds for stakes of $143,223.
