Wid­dup woes in the past

The Sunday Telegraph (Sydney) - - RACING -

FOR a while, Brad Wid­dup was won­der­ing when the luck was go­ing to come his way again.

Bad bar­rier draws, no luck in run­ning and a horse al­most putting Akari through the run­ning rail in a trial had left the trainer beyond frus­trated.

But when his Snitzel filly won the Listed Regi­nald Allen Qual­ity, he felt huge re­lief.

“It’s mas­sive,’’ Wid­dup said. “We’ve been un­der the pump the past cou­ple of months and it’s great for the sup­port­ive con­nec­tions.

“We had a big first sea­son and these are the races we want to win. She’s very well bred. Her mother is a half to Micky Isle.’’
