Our iron horse Spiegel Grove notched up 2 wins in 2 weeks at his home track.
First up on the 21st of August, Spiegel Grove won the 2118m Coopers XPA BM 60. Hitting the front a fair way out, Spiegel Grove kept running to score by 0.3lengths. Once again, a fantastic ride by Jason Holder.
On the 4th of September, Spiegel ran in the Coopers XPA High weight BM64 2122m (AUS v IRE Jumping Series). Carrying 69kgs and well ridden by Darryl Horner (Jnr), Spiegel battled away to win by 0.5L. It was a thrill to see Spiegel bringing home a win for Australia wearing the Australian colours.
Spiegel Grove certainly is a track specialist with 6 of his 9 wins being at Gawler. As said by trainer Darren Magro ‘He is sound and tough and keeps getting better each season’.
Congratulations to connections.
