Above: Cluster had a winning double at Canberra on Sunday.
The juvenile race at Canberra on Sunday was won on debut by promising gelding Rocket Tiger, whose sire Cluster posted a winning double at the meeting with three year-old Galactic Warrior casting off maiden status later in the day.
Retained to race by his breeder, Rocket Tiger is trained at Wagga by Scott Spackman, who had the youngster fit and ready to fire.
He raced on the pace and was tenacious in scoring a half head win over the race favourite Wilsons Prom.
Rocket Tiger is the ninth winner from 10 foals to race from great producer Takook, who has a yearling filly by Cluster and had a colt this spring by another of the Larneuk Stud sires in O’Lonhro.
A Group II winning son of Fastnet Rock, Cluster stands at Larneuk Stud at a fee of $5,500.
