A trip to Wyong, Wednesday 14th December 2022 saw Wild Irish Rover (No Nay Never USA/Fast and Sexy) awarded the Gold Coast Yearling Sale 10-16 January Maiden Handicap over 1350m.
He didn’t cross the finishing line first, but following the completion of race 3, the protest flag was raised. Ultimately Stewards deemed that Wild Irish Rover was impeded by Mr Wallace (Medaglia D’oro USA/Streama) and was not granted fair opportunity to contest the finish. Protest upheld, much to the delight of his ownership group.
Jockey Josh Parr’s riding prowess and later his eloquent speaking were instrumental in the first placed horse being delegated to second position, granting Wild Irish Rover the victory. Congratulations to all Owners and their connections.
