Gallant in defeat

Our two stable representatives competed at the Gunbower Cup Meeting today -- lovely track, lovely people!

Fours Enuff Tas and Irish Whisper both finished in third placing, but with more than pleasing performances.

In the trotters cup, Irish Whisper had to be on his best behavior, coming off 40 metre handicap, and got away safely.  With the favorite Dead Cat Bounce jogging along in front, driver Damian Wilson sent  'Irish' dashing three-wide into the death-seat with 1700 metres to go.

While we had to be content with third, the run again showed what the horse  is capable of and with a few more runs under his belt, the stable's confident he will be a big player in the coming trotters feature races.

Fours Enuff Tas burnt out of the gate but had to do all the work outside the leader and eventual winner The Pix in the "Hot Lap" race, always a feature at the Gunbower meeting.

Tas came in third, but all-in-all, another encouraging run.
