Quinella great thrill for Con­nor

Sunday Territorian - - SPORT -

HE WAS in front when they jumped, and he was still in front at the fin­ish.

That’s the tale of the tape with the Greg Con­nor-trained Nordic Eclipse (Bren­don Davis) tak­ing out the B & S Home Tim­ber Hand­i­cap (1200m) at Pi­o­neer Park yes­ter­day.

To top things off, Con­nor had an ad­di­tional rea­son to cel­e­brate as sta­ble­mate Ice­flow (Stephen Ri­dler) came sec­ond.

Pun­ters ex­pected the Con­nor pair to fea­ture promi­nently in the out­come of the race as well with Ice­flow the $3 favourite and Nordic Eclipse the sec­ond elect at $4.60.

“It’s a nice sur­prise and I’m very happy to land the quinella,” Con­nor said.

Hus­sars (Si­mone Altieri) and Bel’s Lad (Barry Hup­patz) gave Nordic Eclipse a run for his money be­fore fall­ing away.
