GRAND TETON IS BRAVE IN WERRIBEE WIN

The decision to start Grand Teton at Werribee on Friday resulted in victory.

Mike Moroney had considered scratching Grand Teton from the Benchmark 58 Handicap over 1600m but decided the race looked winnable after scratchings reduced the opposition to six.

Patrick Moloney was positive from the wide draw and went forward to lead after 200m. Pressed strongly at the home turn by the other equal-favourite Von Richter, Grand Teton ($2.60 eq. fav) pulled out plenty for Moloney and came away towards the finish to score by a neck.

Moloney said there was plenty of merit to the win.

“It was a good, tough effort under 60.5 kilos,” Moloney said. “He’s not overly big so for him to carry the weight and fight them off like that was a good effort.

“We were able to get across quite comfortably from the wide draw and then control the race.

“He responded really well for me when the other horse levelled up to me on the turn and he toughed it out really well.

“Come the winter he’ll appreciate the softer tracks and he’s capable of getting to mid-week level I think.”

This the second win from 10 starts for Grand Teton and congratulations to connections Ballymore Stables (Aust) Pty Ltd, R & C Legh Racing Pty Ltd, Pulitano Thoroughbreds Pty Ltd, Mr G Devonport, Mr G B Robinson, Mr M J Moran, Mrs H M Moran, Mr C C Chamberlain and Mrs C A Chamberlain
