BRIGHTON trainer Gary White notched a double at Spreyton on Sunday with horses that are destined to win more races this season
Brodie’s Boy scored his first win on a heavy track when he accounted for his rivals in a 0-66 handicap race over 1000 metres and in the following race his three-year-old filly Tesla Coil won a 3YO and upward maiden over 1175 metres.
Brodie’s Boy hadn’t won for almost a year but with leading apprentice Ronan Keogh aboard he was able to weave his way through the pack and find room at crucial stages of the race and when challenged in the straight he responded well to score impressively.
Tesla Coil also had Keogh aboard and it was courtesy of a masterful piece of riding that ensured the filly broke her maiden status.
Keogh had Tesla Coil poised to pounce from midway through the race and when he made his move she quickly swept to the lead and while she ran about in the straight she always had her rivals covered
