It was a great thrill to win our first race for Dye Racing at Canterbury today, 8thMay 2019, taking out the ANZ Bloodstock News Handicap over 1250m. It was a nail-biting finish between Knowitall Jack (Pierro/Briolette NZ) and Godolphin’s Sedgemoor. These two horses were one/two respectively throughout the race but Knowitall Jack survived a late surge from the second horse to win by a nostril.
Knowitall Jack is still a little green but was ridden masterfully as always, by jockey James McDonald. Today’s win should give the horse the confidence and composure for him to start putting it all together.
It was also a day of first wins for stable strapper Elisa Salewski and newly appointed Racing Secretary, Robyn Fowler.
Congratulations to all.
