Ryan happy to make trek from Ge­orge­town

The Weekend Post - - Sport - JOR­DAN GERRANS HORSE RAC­ING

ATHOL Ryan does not mind the long hours be­hind the wheel if he has a de­cent horse on board.

The Ge­orge­town-based trainer will start two horses at Can­non Park this af­ter­noon, Johnny Fix It and My Girl Chaz, in the sec­ond race of the thin four-race card today, the $7500 Class B Hand­i­cap (1250m).

All up it is a 12-hour round trip to do the thing Ryan loves.

“You have to do it if you want to do it,” Ryan said.

Johnny Fix It has run in the top three in seven of its last eight starts.

My Girl Chaz will have come­back hoop Sonja Wise­man in the sad­dle today.

The first of four jumps from Can­non Park at 12.45pm.

Mean­while, Ather­ton trainer Bruce Hunter scored a win­ner in the re­turn to rac­ing at Clu­den Park on Thurs­day. With jockey Amanda Thomson on board, Bon Temps scored by a nose on the line in the 0 – 60 Hand­i­cap (1000m).

Cairns’ Rhonda Inglis also tasted vic­tory at Townsville as Lilly Ka­reena took out the sec­ond last of the day, the Bench­mark 70 Hand­i­cap (1000m).
