Australia's forgotten trotting star Acacia Ridge is close to a racetrack return. Acacia Ridge has won of 19 of 30 starts.
 
He has not started since an injury in the Bill Collins Mile of December 2007.

I had a terrible night at cranbourne last night. took a 1.04 pop one out in first leg, runs fourth and a 75 dollar job gets up. how can you win!
 
acacia ridge is getting the fitness up and last night everyone just chucked him in the quaddies because there was no way known you could leave hm out. think he started fave also at around the 3.50 mark
 
cannot wait till he gets to full fitness and wins all our trotting events. hopefully he is not struck by injury again, as im a friends of the hobans

Just like too clear this up. That was Acacia Ridges first go against the pacers. Is assessed a C2 based on how many trotting wins it has had. I am pretty sure your first Metro Trot win will make you a trotter a C1 but not sure how he has found himself assessed a C2.

But great to see him back. If he gets back to his best and what he seemed destined to do he will give Sundons Gift a touch up.
