Handy stayer and noted mud lark Shearer returned back to the winners circle for leading trainer Peter Gelagotis after leading all the way at Ballarat recently aided by a superbly judged race by Jamie Mott.

" A city winner in Adelaide as a 3yo Shearer has been given plenty of time to mature and once he stepped out to the right distance beyond 2000m he really hit his straps and the bog track helped as the son of Reset excels in the going. He gave the faithful no problems in the run and kindly saluted at the ripe odds of 20/1 which was nice for connections" stated Gelagotis

Shearer will race through the winter months and be set for races over similar journeys over the coming months.
