Gol­lan wins metro record

Townsville Bulletin - - SPORT -

DAN­GLISSA Girl has posted a mile­stone win for Tony Gol­lan, giv­ing Bris­bane’s premier trainer the new metropoli­tan record.

Gol­lan equalled the late Bruce McLach­lan on 78 when Most Im­por­tant won at the Sun­shine Coast on Satur­day and set the new stan­dard with Dan­glissa Girl’s Doomben vic­tory a day later. McLach­lan posted his to­tal in 1987/ 88.

Dan­glissa Girl was rid­den by Bris­bane’s soon- to- be crowned premier jockey Jim Byrne to a decisive win in a 1200m- maiden for two- yearolds.

The filly, by lead­ing first sea­son sire Hinch­in­brook out of 1999 Flight Stakes win­ner Dan­glissa, won her race by 1- 1/ 4 lengths. “It’s a great ef­fort from Tony. He’s only a young trainer and he’s won a sec­ond premier­ship,” Byrne told Sky Thor­ough­bred Cen­tral.
