easy runningPromising youngster Easy Running proved a bargain buy when the gelding collected a $53,000 first prize cheque after claiming the QTIS Northpark Apartments Handicap at Doomben on Saturday.

Trainer Desleigh Forster paid only $16,000 for the son of Easy Rocking who led all the way at his second race start to win the 1110-metre sprint by a short half head over Toowoomba's Aquatorial.

The Bryan Guy-trained Dazzling Kind was a further six lengths away third.

Easy Running is raced by a syndicate which includes Forster's long time client, former bookmaker Doug Forbes, who has had a lot of luck racing the progeny of Easy Rocking.

Like Forster, Forbes wasn't getting carried away with the victory but the pair may give Easy Running his chance to earn a winter carnival campaign.

"He's only a little fella and I'll probably put him out for 10 days or so and bring him back into work," Forster said.

"He's bombproof and we'll know more about him when he comes back from a break and whether he's up to the winter races."

Forster was confident Easy Running could break his maiden status after finishing second to Flammable on debut at Doomben last month.

"He missed the kick in his first start and had to do a lot of work after that," Forster said.

"He still travelled like a winner but he naturally knocked up towards the finish."

Jockey Damian Browne believes Easy Running has a bright future but was reluctant to declare him a winter carnival contender.

"He began like a bullet and was able to lead easily and had a good kick at the finish," Browne said.

Browne felt the race experience Easy Running gained from his debut was a telling factor in the result.

"With two-year-olds, experience is everything," Browne said.

"He relaxed good in the early stages and was cruising in front.

"But it's too early to say if he's up to the winter carnival."
