It’s been a big week for Tamworth trainer Melissa Dennett – with “Ballast” taking out the 2021 Manilla Cup.
The nine-year-old gelding, ridden by Jackon Searle, holding a four-length lead for most of the $10,000 race.
We bring you the final stages.
“Ballast in front, Danspur trying hard, Ballast all the way! A good ride, it’s won by two!”
(runs 7 secs… A good ride, it’s won by two!)
It’s the horse’s second win in the space of a week, after taking out the Barraba Cup, last Saturday.
