River Spirit Wins Grafton Open
Apr 08, 2014
Long time supporters of the stable Don and Irena Beard of the Aldena Syndicate have quite an impressive quiver of horses in work at the moment, with none shooting straighter than River Spirit right now. River has been racing in great form lately and did not disappoint in the 1115m Open at Grafton on the 8th of April. Finding himself last on the turn, River stormed home to win by a nose, beating Spiritist into 2nd and Villamill 3rd. Jockey Cassandra Schmidt glowingly reported that River travelled beautifully throughout and raced with the enthusiasm of his earlier days. With his quality stablemates soon to start racing, perhaps he has realised what its going to take to hold the top position for Aldena.
