Favourite son, Splintex (Snitzel/Acquired) conquered Flemington’s Straight Six to secure the win in the Group 2 Lexus Bobbie Lewis Quality, Saturday 11th September 2021.
This under-rated 5yo was ridden flawlessly by jockey Craig Williams. Travelling with cover, he exploded with 100 m to go. Overtaking The Astrologist (3rd) and holding off the fast-finishing Away Game (2nd) to win the prestigious sprint.
Still an entire, but you’d hardly know it as he is always so well behaved, a true gentleman. Congratulations to winning owners, Geoff and Mary Grimish, it is always such a thrill to get a win for this deserved couple.
“Splinty’s” incredible will to win made sure it was such an exciting race to watch. A very proud moment for us all.
A special mention to Nick Ryan and his team who stabled and cared for Splintex prior to presenting him at the races in such magnificent order. Thank you Nick, not the first time you have helped us out either.
