There were big smiles all round at Flemington on Saturday 7th May, with the win of Spur on Gold in the VRC Member Effie Condovrakis handicap over 2000m.
Owners Teresa Poon and David Kobritz hosted a delegation from the Australian Chinese Jockey Club at the Flemington meeting, and as Teresa explained, David provided them with some advice on the horse’s chances before the race:
“He said, ‘the field is so strong, he’s got no hope in winning’. So I told everyone, ‘be mindful, he can’t win, don’t put the money on’. So no one put the money on.”
Cheryl however did not hear this conversation, and gave her own clairvoyant message to the visitors, pointing out the Winner’s Lounge and telling them
“We will be in there after Spur On Gold’s race!”
Congratulations to Teresa and David and the Musk Creek Farm team, and to Damien Thornton who gave Spur on Gold a great ride.
As always the Epsom Lodge team have done a great job to have the horse spot on for this race. Well done and many thanks to all.
