Sad­dle Up wins in Hamil­ton

The Weekly Advertiser Horsham - - Sport -

Stawell train­ers Terry and Ka­rina O’sullivan re­turned to the winners cir­cle in fine fashion at Hamil­ton.

The train­ing part­ner­ship had Sad­dle Up lin­ing up in a bench­mark-58 event over 2200 me­tres with sta­ble ap­pren­tice Jes­sica Ea­ton rid­ing.

Sad­dle Up made good use of his in­side bar­rier, box-seat­ing be­hind the lead­ers.

The seven-year-old con­tin­ued to travel kindly for Ea­ton, loom­ing as a big chance be­fore the turn. Once bal­anced, Sad­dle Up took the ground-sav­ing run on the rails and dashed clear.

The son of Ble­vic was strong to the line, scor­ing a work­man-like two-length win.

Sad­dle Up recorded just his sec­ond vic­tory in 26 starts, re­ward­ing his con­nec­tions’ faith and pa­tience in their geld­ing.

Yen­dall got the goss

Hor­sham jockey Dean Yen­dall en­dured a frus­trat­ing day at the Bal­larat Cup meet­ing but still man­aged to boot home a win­ner.

Yen­dall had to wait for the last event, team­ing with Dar­ren Weir to ride Got The Goss. Got The Goss set­tled well back in the field while en­joy­ing a soft run.

Yen­dall had to wait for a gap to open up in the straight, but when the son of Eaves­drop­per saw day­light he came home with a strong burst.

Got The Goss had to hold off a fast-fin­ish­ing Proud Wolf to score by a long neck.
