Hecta wins on debut
May 05, 2017
It was a case of deja vu for the owners of Hecta when he saluted in the 2yo race on the Thursday of the May Carnival.
The same connections were successful in 2016 with Rata Tat Tat
Hecta was an impressive winner yesterday. He jumped quickly, sat wide and the pressure was put to him early.
Jockey Craig Williams let him roll back to the running rail, which left him on his own and he showed tenacity to get the job done.
Hecta looks to have a bright future ahead of him.
While the winners were limited in the 2017 May Carnival, we saddled up 23 runners and 12 of them finished in the first five.
Hecta was the sole winner of the carnival.
