DARREN Beadman was tickled pink on several fronts after Maternal beat stablemate Kinshachi yesterday at Ipswich.
It capped a winning double for Beadman, who reflected on his relationships with both Waterhouse and winning jockey Jeff Lloyd.
“I rode a lot for Gai over the years and to win her race gives me a great thrill,” Beadman said.
“And Jeff is a good mate of mine. We were in Hong Kong at the same time. He’s riding like a 20-year-old at the moment. He’s a legend.”
COREY Brown was suspended for his winning ride on Revenire in the Bundamba Plate.
Brown will ride up to and including Saturday’s Tatt’s Tiara meeting and then start the 11day suspension.
