It is the Dragonstone (Mikki Isle/Quick’s the Word) and Apprentice Tyler Schiller combination that will be the stable’s first winners of 2022. Dragonstone saluted in the Schweppes Handicap over 1000m on the Kensington track at Randwick 1st January 2022.
Jumping from barrier 6, Schiller allowed the speed to go ahead, patiently biding his time close to the rear of the field. At the turn he peeled off, coming wide to stake his claim as he gunned down leader De Grawin (Snitzel/De Lightning Ridge). Taking the lead at the 100m mark for the well-earned victory.
Congratulations to all the owners, many enjoying their first-ever winner at Randwick. I am sure this special little colt has the ability to provide many more ‘firsts’ for the ownership group.
