With the Trainer’s imminent departure to Hong Kong, the stable has been experiencing its inevitable wind down, resulting in diminishing numbers of Owners and Runners. So, it was bittersweet to achieve what is most likely to be our last Wyong winning double today 6th April 2023.
The first winner came in Race 2, the Sara Ryan Racing Maiden Handicap over 1350m where Skylight Song (Your Song/Skylight Glow) sporting the Mittiga family colours (supporters of the stable since our earliest successes) tasted victory with an easy win, ridden to perfection by Jockey Josh Parr.
The second win was in the fifth race, the Damien Lane Racing Class 1 Handicap over 1600m, where Street Gossip (So You Think/Wahng Wah) anticipated the jump and sprang out best from Barrier 1. From there, Jockey Tom Sherry allowed the speed to go ahead, keeping the filly in a controlled gait. At the turn she came wide with the goal to contest the lead. Once in the straight she chased down front runner Queenmaker (Tavistock/Ijaaza) to come away with an emphatic win.
Another good day for the stable and congratulations to all Owners and Connections.
