Austrian Theory won first time out as a 2YO and was immediately introduced to pattern racing, being placed in both his GR3 and GR2 outings.  He finished his 2YO career with a rating of 104.  Having run four times since April 2022, without getting placed we all wondered what had gone wrong.  However Charlie & Mark Johnston as well as Austrian Theory himself had the last laugh when he turned up at Hamilton on June 28th for the valuable Almada Mile Handicap.  His followers had deserted him and he went to post at a price of 14/1.  Both he and a short priced favourite battled it out to the final furlong with Austrian Theory leading in the final 100 yds to lead by a length.  The firm ground at Hamilton was obviously to his liking and we can expect further trips to the winning enclosure if he gets the ground to his liking.

We would like to congratulate Charlie &Mark Johnston for getting Austrian Theory back to his winning ways.
