New Zealand-bred six-year-old Gambit maintained his splendid form and brought up a hat-trick of wins when he outclassed his rivals in the 2130m APG Perth Bullion Winners Pace at Gloucester Park on Friday night.

Maddison Brown gave the $1.70 favourite plenty of time to settle down before sending him to the front after 500m. He then coasted over the first 400m sections of the final mile in 31sec. and 30sec. before speeding over the final quarters in 27.8sec. and 27.7sec. to win by one and a half lengths at a 1.55.7 rate from the $3.90 second fancy Mighty Ronaldo, who fought on gamely after racing in the breeze.

“He is going that well that I can’t see why he shouldn’t run in the $50,000 Pinjarra Cup on Monday week (March 7),” said trainer Gary Hall snr.

Gambit had 22 starts in New Zealand for owner Steve Waters for six wins and six placings, with his most notable success being a group 2 $45,000 Free-For-All at Alexandra Park in March 2020.

All his 17 runs in Western Australia have been at Gloucester Park — for six wins and seven placings. He is by American stallion Shadow Play and is the eighth and final foal out of Whata Breeze, a Sands A Flyin mare who raced 38 times for four wins, 12 placings and $42,639.
