Fortrus Dancer continues stable's great run
Jun 14, 2015
Fortrus Dancer headed back to Warracknabeal yesterday after a luckless run at the same track a fortnight ago and continued the outstanding run for the stable by saluting in the 1200m 0-58 Handicap and won in a time that was only a second outside the track record.
The victory makes it 3 winners from the last 3 starters saddled up by Terry and the team following on from the wins of Geromayo and Coghills Creek at the Swan Hill carnival the previous weekend.
Fortrus Dancer was perfectly ridden by impressive young jockey Cory Parish who began well on her and settled nicely on the pace before letting her down at the 300m where she worked to the line very impressively to win by a long neck with 3.25 lengths back to third.
Post race Cory suggested that she would be even better suited over a longer trip and that 1400m or even 1600m would be ideal for her in the coming weeks
