Meet Mr Taylor Dispels The Doubters

Jun 02, 2019

Meet Mr Taylor dispelled any doubts about his ability to handle 1200 metres when he outsped his rivals in the TAB Class 6 Plate.

"He's a funny horse. Every run he's had just for a fleeting moment you think 'uh-oh' and then 'nah, he's right'," trainer Kelly Schweida said.

"Winning today at 1200 metres opens up a lot of options for him rather than having to just keep him to 1000m only."

Leading throughout with apprentice Corey Bayliss aboard, Meet Mr Taylor, the $1.95 favourite, defeated Jami Lady ($3.30) by 1-1/4 lengths with Gaulois ($10) a fast-finishing third.

The gelding ran the final 600 metres in a slick 33.90 seconds with his final 200m sectional in 11.60, making it impossible for his rivals to overhaul him.
