Smith Double Suggests Big Vic Future
Perth trainer Lindsey Smith’s recent move to set up a satellite stable in Victoria has paid immediate dividends. The Gr1-winning trainer celebrated a winning double yesterday at Ballarat when Our Wind Spirit ($3.00 favourite) and Seven Castles ($1.85 favourite) both bolted in by 2.25-lengths. The highly accomplished trainer, who has over 50 winners for the season, is using the former Warrnambool stables of ex trainer Darren Weir whilst still running his operation in Perth. With Reykjavic likely to run in Flemington’s Listed Winter Championship Series Final on Saturday and a possible return to racing for retired Gr1 star Black Heart Bart, Smith could have a big future in Victoria.
