Leading apprentice Raquel Clark continued her great form with a double at Gawler last Saturday.
So You Too got the ball rolling for her, with a victory in the Benchmark 90 race over 1200 metres.
Prepared by Clark’s masters, Leon Macdonald and Andrew Gluyas, So You Too defeated Go the Journey by half a length.
Clark’s second winner came aboard John Hickmott’s Danouli, who worked home well from a midfield position to win the 2100-metre Benchmark 70 event.
The young rider went on with the job at Port Augusta on the following day, guiding Youbetcha to victory for Macdonald and Gluyas.
Familiar story ...
Darren Weir enjoyed another good Saturday, with four winners at Flemington and one at the Gawler metropolitan meeting. The $1.90 favourite Night Falls scored convincingly. He was ridden by Brad Rawiller.
Good day for Tony, too
Tony McEvoy also enjoyed two-state success. After Mintha scored for him at Flemington, McEvoy nabbed a double at Gawler.
Two-year-old First Diamond struck first for him, winning over 1200 metres. Later in the day Miss Siska, ridden by Jamie Kah, scored an easy victory over 1500 metres.
Miss Siska, a half sister to Hay List, has now won four of her 10 starts
Gold strikes impressively
Lloyd Kennewell, soon to be based at Caulfield, was very satisfied with the win of Gold Denari in the 1100-metre Benchmark 64.
Ridden by the trainer’s three kilogram-claiming apprentice Alfred Chan, Gold Denari came from near-last to score.
Sue continues strong run
Naracoorte horsewoman Sue Jeansch found the winners enclosure again last weekend, with the Justin Potter-ridden Amberdi successful for her over 1200 metres Gawler.
Alice shows versatility
Well done to apprentice Alice Lindsay on her double at Port Augusta last Sunday. She was triumphant on Sue Nolan’s Aldolphin, who led throughout over 2300 metres in the Cup (paying $60!) and Ken Sweeney’s Anamnesis, $2.10 favourite over 1100 metres.
