Chal­licum gives Dod­son a spark

The Weekly Advertiser Horsham - - Sport -

Telo­pea Downs trainer Dar­ryl Dod­son re­turned to win­ning form at Mon­day’s Nara­coorte meet­ing.

Chal­licum rep­re­sented the Dod­son yard in a 1430-me­tre maiden, with Eran Boyd in the sad­dle.

The son of Anacheeva ap­peared to race greenly, how­ever still man­aged to get a nice run in the sec­ond half of the field. From there Chal­licum eased into clear gal­lop­ing room be­fore the turn.

When bal­anced, the fouryear-old geld­ing came home with a with­er­ing burst.

Over the con­clud­ing stages, Chal­licum proved too classy, salut­ing by a length.

If the penny drops with Chal­licum, he could cer­tainly win bet­ter races in the fu­ture through­out the Lime­stone Coast.

Yen­dall wins

Hor­sham jockey Dean Yen­dall tasted metropoli­tan suc­cess aboard the Dar­ren Weir-trained Grey Shadow at Caulfield. Con­test­ing a bench­mark-90 event for mares, $5.50 Grey Shadow was given a beau­ti­ful ride, find­ing the box seat with­out any trou­ble.

The Dash for Cash mare con­tin­ued to travel strongly, let­ting go with a strong run and pow­er­ing away in the straight to score com­fort­ably by more than a length.

Sun­day’s win on the spring stage was timely for Yen­dall, as he looks to se­cure mounts for the up­com­ing spring fea­tures.
