Despite winning almost $300,000 already, astute Sydney trainer Gerald Ryan blames himself for Red Excitement’s lack of form earlier in his career.

After watching the three-year-old son of Excites sit wide and score a powerful win at Warwick Farm today, Ryan said it was his own fault.

“Once I stopped looking at him thinking he was a bit light, and started training him like a horse, he started to race like a real racehorse,” Ryan said after the race today.

“The more I got into him the better he has gone,” he added.

Red Excitement was confidently ridden by Josh Adams who later paid tribute to Ryan and his staff.

“It really is a tribute to Gerald and his staff to have him going so well and to continue to have him running so well,” he said.

Ryan said he would not spell the horse while he was racing so well.

“There’s no point in stopping him now.

“We’ll place him right now and he’ll drop a lot in weight and there could be another win just around the corner for him,” he said.
