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!
