I Am Grouse is exactly that!

 I Am Grouse has made a return to the winners stall after winning on debut back in September of 2014.

A victim of circumstances and one of those horses where "things just haven't gone right with him in races", made amends today as everything went right and he duly saluted with a dominant winning performance at Metropolitan level.

Drawing the middle of the pack, Grouse bounced out as per usual and sat just behind the leader and favourite in the race. Staying away from the rail and in the better going, Grouse was afforded a charmed run by Oliver, keeping him in the clear and keeping him in rhythm throughout.

When the pressure went on at the top of the straight, I Am Grouse proved his name to be correct as he took the length of the straight under the urging of Oliver to get past his rival, to be in front when it counted, eventually scoring by half a length over the more popular elect.

Congratulations to all involved with the win today of I Am Grouse.

A special mention must also go to the ground staff who have worked tirelessly throughout the cold winter months. The effort that is put in is second to none and it's great to see them be rewarded with what we strive for most - Winners!

Onwards and upwards for I Am Grouse.
