Pride Racing couldn't have been prouder to watch Ball Of Muscle steam roll through the line at Caulfield on Saturday. With his two older brothers, Terravista and Tiger Tees now enjoying retirement it's all up to Ball Of Muscle to fly the flag for the family.

Being the youngest of the three Joe nick named him 'Cub'. However he's no pit pony, Cub has plenty of Dubawi shining through with his solid frame and masculine head.

Cub has had plenty to live up to with his two older siblings both being Group 1 winners and so far he has been model of consistency.

Pride Racing were over the moon to see him secure his 10th career win and break a million dollars in prize money earned in The Heath stakes. It was no easy race at Caulfield yesterday, he was up against an army from the Weir stable which included proven sprinters VOODOO LAD and the Everest contender BRAVE SMASH.

As the gates opened Cub used his lightening speed to secure his usual position in the lead. He has a cruising speed that most horses struggle to keep up with so it was no surprise to see him a length ahead of the of the field. By the 400m he had the majority of the pack off the bridle and little did they know he wasn't finished yet. BRAVE SMASH came at him on the inside but he still had plenty in the tank and won the race with a length to spare.

Looking forward Joe wants to see how Cub pulls up before making any definite decisions, he could head to The Shorts or back over the border to Moonee Valley. The team at home were so proud to see Cub smash through for his first run of the season and we can't wait for the rest of his preparation.

Congratulations to his connections Mr A J Rix, Mr M J Rix, Ungar Family, Mr T M Ungar, Mr P J Trowbridge, Mr J W Owsnett, Mr I G Cornell, Mr N B Couper, N P G, Mr R P Coombs
