Australia’s new glamour horse, Tarpins, has done it again with a tremendous win in the Class 2 Coulter Roache Lawyers Country Showcase Handicap over 2233 metres at Geelong yesterday.
Tarpins was well supported on track by a large group of his excited and enthusiastic owners.
If he pulls up well after his run, he will be heading to Tasmania on 9 February for the Group 3 Tasmanian Derby. And so will we.
Our thanks to Dean Yendall for another great ride, and Jamie Edwards and Bruce Elkington for having him cherry ripe for the race.
And just to prove the old saying, ‘Winners are Grinners’, check out these cheesy post-race smiles:
