VICTORIAN owned and bred dog Educated Cash broke through for his first win in his adopted state when he gave a handy field of juveniles a galloping lesson at Tattersall’s Park in Hobart last Thursday night.

Educated Cash was having his third outing for top Tasmanian trainer Mick Stringer and made it look easy as he strolled to an effortless 7-3/4 length win over Doc Berkshire over 461 metres.

He covered the trip in a handy 26.41s and good enough to suggest he can make his way through the grades, at least on the Hobart circuit.

The son of Cash Express went into the race with two minor placings at his only other Tassie starts.

He finished second a week earlier to Place Your Bet in the Young Star Classic final over the same course and distance and it was that run which encouraged punters to send him around the $2.90 favourite.

Stringer has a good association with the dog’s owner Allan Britton with this dog one of a number of promising pup’s sent across Bass Strait to start their racing careers.

Educated Cash began his racing career with a minor placing at Sandown, followed by some unplaced efforts before winning two at Geelong prior to making the trip across Bass Strait in late July.
