Con­coni in Bal­larat win

The Weekly Advertiser Horsham - - Sport - BY JOSH MACKAY

Stawell train­ers Terry and Ka­rina O’sul­li­van have con­tin­ued their suc­cess af­ter win­ning the Caster­ton Cup a fort­night ago.

The O’sul­li­vans had con­sis­tent per­former Con­coni, which lined up in the Hertz Bal­larat Su­per Vo­bis Maiden Plate over 1100-me­tres, with Luke Nolen rid­ing.

Con­coni showed some dash leav­ing the bar­ri­ers, camp­ing right on the leader’s heels with Nolen af­ford­ing her the run of the race. Once bal­anced, the daugh­ter of Bian­coni loomed omi­nously, dash­ing past the tier­ing Bella.

Con­coni went on to record a work­man like win, scor­ing by a lengt­hand-a-half.

Con­coni now boasts one win from eight starts, and two mi­nor plac­ings for earn­ings of $35,730.

Bor­der raid

Telo­pea Downs-based trainer Dar­ryl Dod­son con­tin­ued his sta­ble’s re­cent good form with a win­ner at Sun­day’s Penola meet­ing.

The Dod­son yard had Tchotchke con­test­ing the Bal­nave’s of Coon­awarra Maiden Plate over 1100m, with Alfred Chan in the sad­dle. With the ad­di­tion of blink­ers, the Hinch­in­brook filly showed a good deal of pace rolled to the lead, how­ever, had to sur­vive a late charge form Bel Moshe to score by a long neck.

Jack hits no ditch

Jack In The Ditch has found ca­reer-best form, win­ning his last two starts.

Hav­ing won at Don­ald over 2000m a fort­night ear­lier, the Paul Preusker­trained five-year-old took his place in a bench­mark-60 1700m hand­i­cap at Penola, with Chris­tine Puls rid­ing.

Jack In The Ditch pushed his way into the box seat, be­hind stale­mate Guru Jim.

Guru Jim looked to be trav­el­ing bet­ter than his coun­ter­part com­ing to the home turn, how­ever, when balanc­ing Guru Jim shied, and went al­most to the out­side fence.

This granted Jack In The Ditch the saloon pas­sage through, to score by a neck on the post.

The son of Amadeus Wolf was a mod­est $1250 pur­chase from the 2014 Mel­bourne Vo­bis Gold Year­ling Sale, but has now earned $45,945 to go with his three ca­reer wins.
