Mr. Metz Wins Capalaba Cup

Saturday night, Capalaba in Queensland hosted the coveted Jimmy Roy Capalaba Cup Final (366m), with the talented Mr. Metz claiming victory in the sprint.

The Ron Ball-trained Mr. Metz, son of Bond x Iza Tora, claimed a two and a quarter length victory over Thunder Puzzle with Tender Lee a further neck back in third.

After overcoming some early trouble, Mr. Metz proved too good for his rivals, clocking a sharp 19.92 seconds. The win bought his career record to a standout eight wins from ten starts.

Mr. Metz will next start at Albion Park this Thursday night when he takes on a quality field for the Young Guns Final (520m).

Ball has said he will then aim the promising speedster at the Group 1 Brisbane Cup series.
