Recent addition to the stable; Sunreel, has barged her way to a strong win – her first for the stable at Port Macquarie on Tuesday afternoon.
The Dundeel mare had been working well leading into her first run for the stable and debuted with a strong second placing at Muswellbrook in mid-April and she followed that with good efforts at Newcastle in tougher grade. Back in class for today’s Port Macquarie assignment, Sunreel was given a great steer by her regular rider Luke Cumberland, and the pair enjoyed an economical run worse than midfield on the rails. Needing a run and with nowhere to go at the 250m, Cumberland shoved clear from a tight gap and Sunreel surged to the lead, running away for a solid win.
Sunreel is another successful tried-horse purchase from our friends at Inglis Digital Online Auctions, and in four runs for team Minervini, Sunreel has won or placed three times, and earned a total of $17,630 in stakes. Her overall record now sits at three wins and seven placings from 19 starts.
Congratulations to her connections, Aaron Blackmore, Logan Crowley, Wayne Grob, Ben Gunn, Beau Kennedy, Gary Metcalf, Michelle Minervini, Mark Minervini, Kevin Morris, Steven Morris, Justin Nightingale, Paul O’Brien, Milt O’Brien, Rob Turner, Charlie Zucco.
