A Saturday meeting, 5th November 2022 saw Willinga Rufio (Dundeel NZ/Sylvaner NZ) return to Rosehill on a track rated a Good 3, in the Quayclean Handicap over 1800m.

He jumped well and was sent forward by Apprentice Jockey Tyler Schiller. Well-rated he continued at a good gait but content with the pace. Having put paid to a brief challenge by Naval Seal and Mayfair Spirit he turned the corner in front and headed for home. He managed to hold off the fast finishing Just A Jedi to lead all the way and claim the win.

Congratulations to Willinga Park and their connections, this exciting horse just keeps improving with every preparation. Still maturing, he promises some very interesting times ahead.
