Autumn Racing - 6 March Review
Jogoo returns with a winner
- Sam Wynne and Gos Jogoo both returned to the saddle after injury. Whilst Gos saluted aboard PERFIDA (see image) for his employer John and Karen Parsons in ‘The Tea House at Riccarton Park Rating 65’ Sam had to settle for placings. Given the length of her layoff her efforts indicate it will not be long before she is back in the winning groove.
- The days feature event was the Sonia & Garry Thompson Open. Highest rated HE’S GOLD benefited by the 4kg claim of Gee Saejorhor to win for owners and trainers Danny and Kezia Murphy. NOWHERE MAN ran second and TRUDEAU third.
- The Parsons’ trained a second winner of the programme in the last on the day with LETSBRINGITON who is part owned by former Grand National Steeplechase winning trainer Sheryl McGlade (1996 with JUST JOJO) and 1988 NZ 2000 Guineas winning trainer Roger McGlade (KRONA). Northern scribe Wally O’Hearn also part owns.
- Andrew Carston also prepared two winners on his home track with EL CAMPEADOR in the Victoria Woodley Maiden and TITANIUM JACK in the Punters Challenge 6 April Enter Now Maiden.
