    Twig Ruler had already won a 2yo maiden at Bunbury on debut. The Kal race was 1st up as a 3yo.

    Wow, he was pretty well bred to be punching around at Kal. He was by Twig Moss (41 stakeswinners, 8 individual Group 1 winners) from a Melbourne stakeswinning (Debutante Stks) Showdown mare.
     Actually, his older full sister Olive Branch won a Blue Diamond Prelude.

    Wouldn't it be something if some of the old school had a session to talk about some of the old tricks SOME of you got up to.
