Dexter flies at Bendigo for Stawell trainer Dane Smith

Before the barrier
Stawell trainer Dane Smith continued his good form through the deeds of Our Dexter, at Bendigo.
The six-year-old lined up in a 0-58 event over 1300 metres on Saturday, with John Allen riding.
Our Dexter pinged out of the barrier stalls, showing good speed working his way to the lead. Allen rated the gelding beautifully out in front, giving him every chance.
Our Dexter was challenged strongly by Coffee before the turn, however still managed to give a strong kick when balanced in the straight.
The son of Monde Bleu fought gamely in the run home, winning by a nose on the post. Our Dexter now boasts four wins and 13 minor placings from 39 starts for earnings of $69,894.
Morphettville success
Horsham jockey Dean Yendall continues to ride with good success this season, and his winning ways rolled on at Morphettville, on Saturday.
Yendall teamed with long-time supporter Darren Weir to ride Rising Hope in the Penang Turf Club Trophy Handicap over 1600 metres. In a patient display, Yendall rode the four-year-old back in the field before Rising Hope made her move before the home turn, steadily making ground.
Once in the straight, Yendall eased the daughter of Encosta De Lago to the outside and came home with a strong run.
Rising Hope proved much too good for her rivals, dashing clear to win by a length.
