“Billy has been aboard two of his past three starts and has got to know the horse a bit,” Dale told Racing.com


“Once he drew the good gate (1) and stepping-up to the 1200m, I thought the horse was really suited.


“It all went to plan and the horse was good enough to get the job done.”

“We drew off the track at Wangaratta and had to work a lot harder than we would have liked,” he said.
