IF “two out of three aint bad” then four out of five is worth getting Excited about.

VINERY Stud resident Excites will make it four winners from only five starters this weekend should debutante King Ludwig salute at his home base at Coonabarabran on Saturday.

The Graham Watts trained gelding has looked sharp in his two official barrier trials finishing second each time.

If King Ludwig is to win, he will need to overcome last start winner Stirring Emotion who, ironically, is also by Excites.

Stirring Emotion is destined to start a short priced favourite in this weekend’s 1200m event after posting an impressive length win at Bathurst over 1100m last start and placing at two previous outings.

Any addition to Excites’ tally would serve as a timely boost for the one and only yearling headed to Oaklands for next week’s Inglis Premier Yearling Sale.

Lot 102 in the auction from Bell River Thoroughbreds is a daughter of Moonee Valley winner and Encosta de Lago mare, Luminary, who is also a three-quarter-sister to SW’er Examination.
