Like A Ruler scored a terrific back to back win at Doomben on Wednesday delighting connections. Leading apprentice jockey, Tiffani Brooker, had a dream ride on the beautiful entire describing him as ‘push button’. At his previous win at Eagle Farm, Like A Ruler had been a little slow away from the barriers, so this time Tiffani rode him a little more positive from the jump.He responded well and got into a great position settling comfortably in second place behind the hot favourite. As they rounded the home turn Tiffani clicked him up and he easily put a couple of lengths on the field.
This win was the third for Like A Ruler who was bred at Clear Mountain Fairview and purchased at the Magic Millions QTIS Sale for $28,000 plus GST. This takes his career earnings to a few dollars short of $75K. The four year old entire has had a few minor setbacks along the way but is finally starting to show the form that saw him win his first start as a 2YO in grand style.
The win continues the recent success of the stable and in particular the combination of Danny J Bougoure and Tiffani Brooker with an impressive 7 rides for 4 wins, 2 seconds and a fourth.
