Warrior heads into Championship battle

Halo Warrior has emerged as a genuine contender for the SDRA Country Championships Qualifier at Wagga on Saturday (February 20).

The son of Kooringal Stud stallion The Brothers War is among a four-pronged attack in the $150,000 feature for Albury trainer Donna Scott (pictured).

Halo Warrior has recorded four wins from only nine starts, including his past two appearances at Wagga and Albury.

The four-year-old, who is from The Brothers War's first crop, has started only once over the 1400-metre journey for a strong win.
