Four-year-old gelding Kaoru King is loving life following a stable change to Jason Edwards, recording back-to-back victories for his new trainer at Doomben on Saturday.

Jumping the gates brilliantly from barrier one, Andrew Spinks took the Mahisara gelding straight to the lead and was never headed, holding off the well supported favourite in Derulo in the concluding stages.

Following a terrific performance when recording a dominant two-and-a-half length victory first-up at Toowoomba, Koaru King’s all the way victory at Doomben took his record to two wins from as many starts since being transferred to Edwards prior to this preparation.

After injury cut short the career of another talented filly for the same owners, Edwards was provided another opportunity when Kaoru King was transferred to his stable in Deagon while recuperating from an inferior check ligament injury.

“The owner just gave one and she unfortunately broke down, but she gave me this one (Kaoru King) and he had a long time off, so I was a bit worried because he had done a serious injury,” Edwards said.

“So I just brought him up slowly because the last thing I wanted to do was see another one break down.”
