It was a great result for owners of La Falaise who won the time honoured Elvestroem Classic on day 1 of the Swan Hill Carnival last Friday. What made the win even more sweeter was the rich purse of prizemoney totalling $100k and some amazing Vobis and Vobis Gold bonuses which the lucky owners will share. From the good barrier jockey Damien Thronton put or filly in the perfect spot just off the speed in the early stages. As the pace quickened in the middle stages Damien found himself in an awkward spot and coming to the turn he had to bullock his way out to get free running in the straight. Once she found a clear path she took a couple of strides to balance up and then really pinned her ears back and attacked the line like a good horse. Trainer Henry Dwyer was very happy and feels she will now have a short break and has earned the right to be aimed at some of the 3YO fillies races in the spring.
