Burleigh Hoping For A Tempting Double

Goulburn trainer Tash Burleigh has unearthed a real late bloomer with O So Tempting.

The O’Lonhro gelding won stylishly on debut when he stepped out over a short course trip at Moruya on January 22 and wil aim to extend his record at Goulburn on Monday.

Burleigh was quietly confident of an eye-catching run at his first start.


“A couple of gallops leading into the race showed he was starting to feel like he was putting it together.

“I had to scratch him from Nowra due to a heavy track so Moruya was plan B.

Burleigh, who has hit winning form of late with two winners from her last four starters, has a long association with O So Tempting.

“He was originally with my former mentor Graeme Spackman as a 2YO before Graeme passed away,” said the former rider.

“I was only starting out training and the owners decided to send him on to another trainer. The horse had gone shin sore a few times in these last couple of years and things weren’t quiet working with him where he was.

“The main owner from WA gave me a call and I was happy to have the horse back in the stable.”

O So Tempting meets a sharp field for a Class 1 on Monday but Burleigh will be happy with some natural improvement off his first up run.

“He is a work in progress and will definitely learn a lot with more racing,” she said.

“But it’s great that he has that mentality, with more runs under his belt he will be an even nicer horse again.”
