Almsgiver Claims Maiden In Swan Hill

Jun 13, 2021

Promising NZ staying import Almsgiver was able to get his maiden win on the board in good fashion at Swan Hill on cup day in the 1600m 2&3 yo race.

At just his third Australian start coming off two earlier placings, Almsgiver gave in form jockey Dean Yendall one of his five winning rides on the day.  Jumping ok from barrier 8 he went forward to settle perfectly in the one back one off position about two lengths from the leader.  On straightening he cruised away to justify his $1.80 favouritism and claim the race by two lengths.

Congratulations to OTI and all of his connections who are no doubt going to have some fun with a horse who shows plenty of upside.
