Hat Trick Of Wins For Turnitaround
May 23, 2016
Stable star Turnitaround made it three from three on Saturday, taking out the 2000m Might and Power Handicap at Flemington. Coming off a Warrnambool May Carnival win and another win at headquarters prior to that, the 5yo Hard Spun gelding has now taken his career earnings to over $380K amassing six wins and twelve placings from twenty-nine starts.
Given a gun ride by talented 3kg claiming apprentice Ben Thompson, he was one of three $4.40 equal favourites to fill the placings when he toughed it out to the line defeating Second Bullet by a long head, with the Darren Weir trained Killarney Kid three lengths away third.
Congratulations again to all of his owners, who I am sure are enjoying the ride as much as we are. It really is a good feeling to have a horse heading to the metropolitan meetings with a real genuine chance knowing that he will give 110%.
