Another great win for the stable at Kembla Grange 17th September 2020 when The Mediator took out the Burrawang Metro & Provincial Maiden Handicap over 1500m.
The Mediator (Sebring/Dream’n’Believe) jumped well enough from barrier 1 and held the fence running a comfortable fourth. Jockey Robbie Dolan was happy to just keep this 3yo bay colt relaxed and let others contend the lead. At the turn horse and rider fanned out, creating space for The Mediator to stride out and find his rhythm. At the 200m mark he took the lead and extended. With the winning margin being nearly 2 lengths, running away from second horse Zarzou (Zoustar/Arinosa) and with La Sagra (Snitzel/Valdermoro) third.
It is always good to win, but it was a special thrill for the stable to win for the McDonnell Family within the ownership group. With the trainer having a connection with the family since his days at Tulloch Lodge. Of course, congratulations to all owners and connections, may we have plenty of success to come.
