Six-year-old Know When To Run, purchased for $13,000 at the APG Perth yearling sale, is proving a wonderful bargain for the Trotsynd No. 11 syndicate.

He boosted his earnings to $118,679 when Gary Hall Jnr drove him to an effortless victory in the 2536m Vintage Cider Pace at Gloucester Park on Friday night.

Starting favourite at $1.10 from the No. 2 barrier, Know When To Run had an easy time in front for the first 1600m before he sprinted over the final 400m sections in 28.5sec. and 27sec. He was untroubled to beat Mister Bushido ($15) by two lengths, and this took his record to 27 starts for ten wins and 12 placings.

Know When To Run is now racing in superb form, after he was forced on to the sidelines for 22 months as he recovered from a damaged tendon suffered in the Golden Nugget in December 2019 in which he finished fifth behind Shockwave.

“He won really comfortably, and did it so easily,” said Hall.

Know When To Run is by Art Major and is the second foal out of the unraced mare Heather Mary, who is a half-sister to Fake Embrace, who had 26 starts in Western Australia between 2004 and 2006 for eleven wins before he continued his career in the United States where he won another 28 races.
