It was a gritty effort from PRIMITIVO when he won the Winter Racing Handicap BM70 (1600m) at Warwick Farm. 

A determined James McDonald pushed forward on the gelding to settle behind the early leaders before building momentum to pick up the lead in the final turn and break away from the pack on straightening.  A late challenge from VEGA at the 50m mark motivated PRIMITIVO to rally and fight back for the win in a nail biting finish! 

Congratulations to his owners who have shown great patience and to my team for their outstanding efforts.
