Norteno breaks through for Qld win

Sep 18, 2010

Norteno opened his Queensland account with a strong win in a 1616m Class 6 plate at Doomben today.

Ridden by 3kg claiming Apprentice Justin Wood, Norteno got in well under the set weight conditions to carry 51.5kgs. m

After beginning well, Wood postioned Norteno just off the speed & had a lovely run in transit. He tracked into the race well around the corner & had to push his way clear to burst through for victory over the concluding stages.

Norteno had a gear change going into the race with blinbkers coming off & pacifiers were added after receiving a nasty eye injury last time out when a beaten favourite.

Norteno returned to excited connections in the Winner's Stall as most of his owners were present to share the win.

A very big congratulations to all connections!
