Wishmore owners get there wish

Dec 22, 2012

Handy stayer Wishmore claimed victory in the 2200m class 1 handicap at the Gold Coast.

In a very rough house affair Wishmore was skilfully steered to victory by promising apprentice Beau Appo.

David Murphy knew Beau's claim would prove very useful in Wishmore's first attempt at the distance. His owner Denis Fogarty who also bred him has recently retired from his much loved position at Mount Alvernia College in Brisbane and was very happy with the efforts of all those involved.

Dave said the horse was unlucky in his two runs prior to the victory and said there will be more staying success in store for him. He will start again at the Gold Coast on Saturday the 5th January in a class 2 handicap with Beau to again take the ride.
