Vouch goes back-to-back
Kylie Williams drives Vouch home at Timaru on Saturday
Progressive mare Vouch confirmed her winning streak in the Champions of Seadown Mile (1600m) at Timaru on Saturday.
It was the Andrew Carston-trained five-year-old’s first race since winning in a similar front running fashion at Riccarton on December 6.
Vouch got away to a flying start at Phar Lap Racecourse, under a positive ride by jockey Kylie Williams, the combination led throughout to win by three-quarters-of-a-length over Pop ‘n’ Rock.
“She’s a progressive mare,” Carston said. “She’s four from sixteen now so she’s putting together a pretty good record.
“I was confident with the way the races had been running today and she’s a handy mare.”
It was the fourth win for the daughter of Highly Recommended who is raced by a group of owners including her breeders Alan and Edwina Morris of Berkley Stud.
Carston said that Vouch’s next start would most likely be in the Miss Scenicland Stakes (1645m) at Greymouth on January 14.
