Con­sol in emo­tional val­ley win

The Weekly Advertiser Horsham - - Sport -

Hor­sham trainer Paul Preusker has con­tin­ued his stel­lar sea­son, notch­ing up an­other city win­ner.

The Preusker yard had its sta­ble star Magic Con­sol lin­ing up in the Travis Har­ri­son Cup over 1600 me­tres at Moonee Val­ley, with Craig Wil­liams rid­ing.

The son of Con­sol­ida­tor be­gan to roll into the race at the 500-me­tre mark. The eight-year-old vet­eran raced away for a seven-length vic­tory. It was an emo­tional win for Wil­liams, be­cause he was a cousin and close friend of Travis Har­ri­son, who was trag­i­cally killed 22 years ago.

Yen­dall in listed win

Hor­sham’s Dean Yen­dall has al­ways adopted the ‘have sad­dle will travel’ at­ti­tude.

Last week­end Yen­dall rode Trades­man in the 2150-me­tre Ip­swich Cup cup for Dar­ren Weir. The six-year-old son of Trade Fair dashed up quickly in the straight and proved too good for First Crush, win­ning by a slen­der mar­gin.

Yen­dall re­turned to Vic­to­ria to take up a book of rides at Bendigo the fol­low­ing day. Again team­ing up with Weir, Yen­dall rode a dou­ble aboard Zaide and Chios­bor­der in a 2400-me­tre maiden and a bench­mark-64 1100-me­tre hand­i­cap.
