    EXCITING youngster Rainbow Jester will have one more start before receiving the ‘cruellest cut’!

    Successful in last night’s New South Wales Foundation Final at Club Menangle, Rainbow Jester is poised to return to the world class venue for next weekend’s Trot NSW Final.

    Following the $50,000 event the Dennis Day-trained two-year-old will be gelded.

    Rainbow Jester will then have a much-needed spell before being readied for the Australasian Breeders’ Crown in Victoria.

    “He’s not too bad to handle at this stage, but he will be gelded in a couple of weeks,” Day said. “Having the cut should make sure he stays easy to handle, especially as we look to travel.

    “He will go around again next week then it’s operation time.

    “I’ll give him six to eight weeks off, then wind him up again for the Breeders’ Crown towards the end of the year.”

    Driven by Day during his latest triumph, Rainbow Jester was given plenty of time to find his stride from barrier nine as Monty Monte worked to the lead from gate 10.

    Sent forward with a sweeping sprint along the back straight, the son of Majestic Son dashed to the front around the home turn before completing a six-metre win from Oria, with Monty Monte boxing on to be 12 metres away third.

    “I eased him out of the gate just to make sure he was balanced nicely,” Day said. “Once he got into his rhythm he felt foolproof.

    “As soon as I asked him to go, he took off and had them covered a long way out.”

    Covering the mile in 1:58.5, Rainbow Jester stretched his record to five wins from six starts for earnings of $66,976.
