Moonee Valley was the scene of enthusiastic celebrations on Friday night 9th February when Tuskar Brook (Hinchinbrook/Stratance) scored a very encouraging win in the MC Signs Plate. This was her first win from 11 starts, and she certainly did it in style leading pretty much all the way in a good tactical ride from Patrick Moloney. Tuskar Brook has been unlucky not to break her maiden status much earlier, in fact she has come off a run of 3 thirds in a row – the last 2 of which were at Sandown.
Congratulations to Colin and his fantastic group of co-owners including Pietrina, Raymond, Anne, Michael, Peta, Tony, Gary, Ben, Jacob, Joel, Ann-Marie, Damian, Zaal, Chris, Matthew, Diane and Brad. Tuskar Brook looked very comfortable in her maiden win, and all going well it looks like they are going to have a bit of fun with her!
Tuskar Brook was purchased at the 2016 Sydney Classic Sales, and Pat and Cheryl are currently attending this year’s Classic Sales to see if they can find another just as good!
Many thanks to all of the hard working Epsom Lodge crew – and congratulations on 2 winners in 2 days!
