The Great Artiste breaks through

The Weekly Advertiser Horsham - - Sport -

Hor­sham trainer Paul Preusker con­tin­ued his good re­cent run of form with a win at his home track on Sun­day.

The Preusker sta­ble had The Great Artiste lin­ing up in a maiden plate over 1200 me­tres, with Holly Mck­ech­nie rid­ing.

The four-year-old was rid­den pa­tiently back in the field af­ter the start, then be­gan to make ground from the 500-me­tre mark.

The Great Artiste came round the home turn, with a long sweep­ing run. When bal­anced, the son of Atomic dashed clear for a one-and-a-half-length win. The Great Artiste looks to have a bright fu­ture, and could win again over the fes­tive sea­son.

Berth­wis­tle in up­set

Telo­pea Downs trainer Dar­ryl Dod­son re­turned to the win­ners cir­cle, cour­tesy of the long-priced Berth­wis­tle, $22.

De­clan Bates took the ride for the 1800-me­tre event, at bench­mark-58 level.

The Al Maher mare set­tled well back be­hind a solid early pace. In a win­ning move, Berth­wis­tle was able to make ground be­fore the turn and once bal­anced weaved a pas­sage through the field.

Berth­wis­tle ob­tained clear gal­lop­ing room, and dashed clear to score by half a length.

Terry and Ka­rina O’sul­li­van also shared the spoils at the Hor­sham meet­ing, in a suc­cess­ful day for district par­tic­i­pants.

The fa­ther-daugh­ter duo was rep­re­sented in a bench­mark 58 1400-me­tre event by Regina Del Nilo. A bril­liant ride from Lewis Ger­man saw the skil­ful filly score a nar­row but gutsy win, com­ing from off the pace.
