Week review

  • It was a nice day for ADR at last Saturday’s picturesque Adamindaby meet which brought home two winners.
  • The highlight of the day was new acquisition Bellman taking out the Adaminaby Cup in his first start for the stable. Hoop Connor Murtagh got the galloper behimd the leader on the fence and showed a great turn of foot to burst through the pack with 200m to go.
  • Adelaide’s Diamond then won the following race (BM58 over 1700m) by more than a length. The victory made it back-to-back wins after saluting at Balranald the start prior.
  • College Dropout ran third by three lengths in race two’s Class 1.
  • Rainbow Thief was only a touch over a length away in race six (BM58).
