Gads­den said much of the credit be­longed to Wade.

“It’s un­real. Just to watch Den­beigh do what she loves,” he said.

“She loves the driv­ing, I used to do a lit­tle bit but I’ve stepped aside and let her go now.

“We do all the work at home to­gether and then come race day I pass her the reins and she just does the job. They all want to get up and run for her.

“I grew up in Robin­vale, Dad al­ways had a cou­ple of horses.

“I got through and fin­ished school, about a week later I came down and started work­ing with Peter Man­ning.

“I spent two or three years there, Den­beigh fol­lowed and started work­ing with Ker­ryn Man­ning.

“We’ve just started to branch out on our own and it’s been a good start to our jour­ney.”

It’s a jour­ney that has plenty of ground left to cover, but at the least Aintha­tright­macca has added early pol­ish.

“He had been out of ac­tion for nearly 12 months when we got him. We have had him for about five months now and he’s just been get­ting bet­ter and bet­ter with each run,” Gads­den said.
