It took Shadow Colour (Hinchinbrook/El Ashb) twelve starts to shake off his maiden status here at Wyong today 8th April 2021. After eight frustrating seconds and two thirds, his win signifies that he is a ‘bridesmaid’ no longer. In fact, he won so convincingly that it is hard to believe he made us wait this long.

Ridden by Josh Parr he won the break from barrier 2, hugged the fence all the way and never looked like being beaten over the 1000m journey. Congratulations to his very patient and deserving owners, hopefully he can claim a few more wins as easily as he did today.
