Castle Corner finds the winners box again!
CASTLE CORNER found his way back to the winners box and notching up to his 3rd career victory!
Early on in his career he was as consistent as they come, racking up a number of 2nd's before his maiden win. His post maiden run was an obvious test to see if he would progress at all on the basis that it took him so long to win his first race. The gutsy Ideal World gelding followed it up with another win and looked like he would be the type to go on with it and win a few races.
He unfortunately went off form a bit through, although not far off in the races and sometimes quite unlucky in the running, but nevertheless not earning any stakes. The stable thought a small break would do him well which was the right choice. He came back from the break to run a very game 3rd, and then following it up with this latest win.
It was an open and competitive field but he had a good draw, favourable distance and a well timed ride by young Jeffery Syster. The combination of all these things had his race mapped out perfectly and won the race by just over a length. If his merit rating is treated fairly, he should remain competitive in these type of fields and hopefully earn a few more stake cheques for the owners involved.
Well done to Mr Mike Wittstock, Morgan Brown and F Fitzsimmons on the win. The partnership were happy to be patient and give the time that the gelding needed to get back to his best. The stable always appreciates the support.
This winner gives the stable a total of 5 wins from just 7 starts and the other runners also earning a cheque. No better way to start the season!
