Win is just the tonic for Tyn­dall

Sunday Territorian - - SPORT -

DAR­WIN- BASED j ockey Me­lanie Tyn­dall capped off an emo­tional week by boot­ing home the win­ner in the fi­nal race at Alice Springs yes­ter­day.

Tyn­dall is good friends with jockey Kate Brooks, who suf­fered a se­ri­ous fall at last week­end’s Pi­o­neer Park meet­ing.

Brooks was trans­ported to Alice Springs hos­pi­tal be­fore be­ing trans­ferred to Royal Ade­laide hos­pi­tal in an in­duced coma for fur­ther treat­ment.

Brooks is on the road to re­cov­ery and so it is bet­ter times for Tyn­dall af­ter get­ting home on the Mark Ny­han-trained four-year-old geld­ing Cash Leak­age in the Las­seters Hand­i­cap (1600m).

Stratig­ra­phy headed Cash Leak­age ($6.10) in the home straight, be­fore Cash Leak­age fought back gamely to win.
