The 3- year-old brown gelding Dragonstone (Mikki Isle/Quick’s the Word) tasted victory in the Canadian Club Handicap over 1000m at Kembla Grange for The Gong Meeting, 20th November 2021.
Ridden by Stable Apprentice Jockey Tyler Schiller, Dragonstone jumped well, travelling comfortably mid-field. A patient Schiller allowed leader Satin Ribbons (Capitalist/Satin Shoes) to set the pace but after the turn decided to ask more of his mount. Dragonstone responded accordingly, racing in the straight before taking the lead at the 100m mark to come away with the win.
Congratulations to Nick Tzaferis and his group of owners who include many friends and co-workers. I am sure there will be more in store for this little horse with the big heart.
