Gold Buttons makes it two from two

May 02, 2015

On Weetwood day in Toowoomba 2nd May, David and the team went up the range to take on saturday class horses with the speedy Gold Buttons.

Sent out a $21 shot by punters, Buttons bounced from the gates and took up her customary front running position. Ridden by super apprentice Bridget Grylls, buttons slipped away from them on the turn and with everything else off the bridle there was no catching her as she bolted in for a 1 length victory to make it 2 wins from her last 2 stars.

A huge training performance by David to back this horse up from last week and as many thought she was a "half mile flyer", however she extended out to win a Saturday Metro race, a big step up to what shes been racing in, worth $41,000 to the winner. 

Congratulations to owner Santo Guargliardo and leasee Mick Hocking on the win.
