Horsham trainer Paul Preusker continued his good recent run of form with a win at his home track on Sunday.
The Preusker stable had The Great Artiste lining up in a maiden plate over 1200 metres, with Holly McKechnie riding.
The four-year-old was ridden patiently back in the field after the start, then began to make ground from the 500-metre mark.
The Great Artiste came round the home turn, with a long sweeping run. When balanced, the son of Atomic dashed clear for a one-and-a-half-length win. The Great Artiste looks to have a bright future, and could win again over the festive season.
Berthwistle in upset
Telopea Downs trainer Darryl Dodson returned to the winners circle, courtesy of the long-priced Berthwistle, $22.
Declan Bates took the ride for the 1800-metre event, at benchmark-58 level.
The Al Maher mare settled well back behind a solid early pace. In a winning move, Berthwistle was able to make ground before the turn and once balanced weaved a passage through the field.
Berthwistle obtained clear galloping room, and dashed clear to score by half a length.
Del Nilo’s chocolates
Stawell trainers Terry and Karina O’Sullivan also shared the spoils at the Horsham meeting, in a successful day for district participants.
The father-daughter duo was represented in a benchmark 58 1400-metre event by Regina Del Nilo. A brilliant ride from Lewis German saw the skilful filly score a narrow but gutsy win, coming from off the pace.
