CONGRATULATIONS – SEVENTH WIN IN THE BAG

Perfect Grace Herholdt MR 75 1800

Congratulations Craig Danckwerts, Debra Swanson, Gary Carter, Paula Lewis and Paul and Ursula Gorringe on Perfect Grace’s perfect performance on Sunday when the seven-year-old gelding won the 1800m MR 75 Handicap at Borrowdale Park.

It is always pleasing when an older horse proves to still have what it takes in a competitive field.  By Antonius Pius (USA) and bred by Highlands Farms Stud, Perfect Grace (4/1) held off Where You (AUS), the same age as the winner, by a quarter of a length, with Lava Flow (also a seven-year-old) and Designer Pot in the other placings. Francois Herhold was riding for Kirk Swanson.

Seems like some ‘youngsters’ should look to their laurels.

This was a Quartet I would not have won, being quite confident that Haga Haga and Philanthropy would finish somewhere in the money. It paid $3963.40.

Well done if you won this and as for the rest of us – better luck next time.
