Win for Winkelmann
21 Feb 2017

Danny O’Brien’s affinity with New Zealand-bred stock was on display at Seymour in Australia today when  the Trelawney owned Winkelmann (Rip Van Winkle x Crepe de Chine) scored a facile maiden victory over a mile.

This was just the third start for the three-year-old filly who was purchased from 2015 NZB draft of Mapperley Stud. 

“It’s great to get a win for Trelawney Stud’s Brent and Cherry Taylor,” O’Brien’s racing manager Matt Harrington said. “Over those shorter trips in town she was getting too far back. Today she was able to settle up on speed and lead and she was too good.”
