Trainer’s Say

Detroy County's maiden win was a very pleasing result. She jumped well from the barrier and sat outside the leader in the 1000m race. Into the straight jockey Willie White gave her some rein and the filly won well with a bit in reserve.

Although not a strong field her winning time of 57:09 was very good, and she won eased down.

Detroy County will now head back to provincial racing and we are sure she will acquit herself well. She will have an easy week before we select her next assignment.

Trainer’s Say

Silver Minx's victory in Saturday's Norseman Cup was a fantastic result for the Harvey family.

He began like a bullet and went straight to the front, a roll he relishes in, with the opposition trying to take him on but they were no match and 'Syd' lead easily. In to the straight jockey Willie 'Pearly' White gave the big gelding full bore and he bolted in winning by 4-1/2 lengths.

We are very proud of Sliver Minx's form this campaign, Saturday's win brought up his fourth for the preparation and his second Cup after winning the Moora Cup earlier in the season.

Providing Silver Minx pulls up well from the big trip to Norseman he will continue on and we will select another race for him in the coming weeks, maybe even another country cup, with a few on the radar for him.
