Road trip looms for Invisible Girl
TOP trainer Lloyd Kennewell enjoyed a perfect day at Morphettville yesterday producing a training treble from just three starters in combination with three different riders.
Kennewell’s apprentice Zac Spain, currently on loan in Melbourne, kick-started the big day with Show Bender, stable jockey Joe Bowditch partnered Invisible Girl to victory before Victorian-based rider Chris Caserta produced a confident front-running effort on Federal Court.
Kennewell said progressive mare Invisible Girl would get her chance interstate after recording her second win from her last three starts.
Bowditch said Kennewell credit for getting the fouryear-old in the right frame of mind after disappointing behind Streetcar Illusion at her last outing when favourite.
“The other day she faced a bit flat,” Bowditch said.
“To Lloydy’s credit, he has done a fantastic job with her he sent her up to the farm for a few days. I didn’t want to be where I was but I knew I would always get a run through and it worked out nice.”
It was the second leg of a training double for Kennewell after Show Bender scored earlier in the day with Zac Spain in the saddle.
Meanwhile, top jockey Jason Holder continued his successful week in the saddle when Silent Warrior scored at Morphettville.
Holder landed four winners at Morphettville on Melbourne Cup Day, followed a with a winner at both Port Lincoln (Wednesday) and Port Lincoln on Thursday before the Stuart Gower-trained Silent Warrior held on for a narrow victory, Holder’s seventh win five days.
