Our 5YO Danehill Express gelding North Ridge made it win number 7 from 26 starts when he took out the bench mark 78+ race over 1600 metres. Coming off a last 5th in Listed company, the drop back in class suited.
What a great money spinner he has been for us, having notched up $393,250 in prize money and bonuses.
Our other runner on the day was the 4YO Medaglia D’Oro gelding Cappo D’Oro, raced by Oakland Park and a group of good friends.
This was his fourth start this campaign which has seen him win first up at over 1600 metres, followed by a 4th place over the same distance before stepping up 2200 metres for his last two runs finishing second in both races.
Cappo D’Oro is a half – brother to Group 1 Sydney Cup winner No Wine No Song and the Oakland Park bred No Song No Supper who won last year’s Warrnambool Grand Annual Steeple.
