SEY­MOUR trainer Barry Good­win saved the best to al­most last at Thurs­day’s races with his fouryear-old geld­ing Wal­lace Street split­ting a blan­ket fin­ish to steal the $25,000 Sey­mour Toy­ota Hand­i­cap over 1100m.

The caller could not sep­a­rate them on the line but the lo­cal horse bobbed at the right mo­ment to fin­ish a whisker ahead of Triple Shot and Pretty Bella.

It was a brave all-the-way bid by Pretty Bella but it fin­ished se­cond.

Reece Good­win, rep­re­sent­ing his fa­ther, said Wal­lace Street was a horse that had, at times, tested the pa­tience of the team at the sta­bles.

He said the win was a “huge sat­is­fac­tion, not only for us but for the own­ers as well”.

“It had been a bit of a gam­ble buy­ing this horse, we paid a bit of money for him and he was a bit dis­ap­point­ing last time, which is why this win is so good,” Good­win said.

He started as favourite at his first start in Vic­to­ria after be­ing bought and moved to Sey­mour from South Aus­tralia.
