Dinga was too good for his rivals at Casterton on Sunday careering away to win by 2.25 lengths. The margin may well have been bigger on the line but Dean Yendall looked after the colt by Safeguard and eased him down in the run to the line. Dinga was impressive on debut at Warrnambool and it was great to see him back up that performance with a terrific win.
The future looks bright for Dinga, who is still green and looks as though he is only going to improve with racing and learns what the caper is all about.
Savvy Boy did a terrific job coming back in distance from the 2400m to win the Heywood Cup over 2000m at Casterton on Sunday – bringing up a double for Wilde Racing.
As the rain came down on the way to the races, we weren’t disappointed as Savvy Boy is a mud-lark.
Not many horses can win their maiden and come out and win their next start. Although it was only 58 grade, Savvy Boy had to carry 61kg and he couldn’t have been more impressive with how he won. He looks to have come into his own, finding a liking for the staying trips and wet tracks.
Both Dinga and Savvy Boy look to have bright futures ahead of them.
Congratulations to the winning connections.
