Chloe’s Puppet Sheds Maiden In Emotion-Filled Win At Wagga

There were cheers and tears at the Murrumbidgee Turf Club this afternoon as Chloe’s Puppet broke through to win the Jam Media Maiden Plate (1200m) by a nose.

It wasn’t because the photo finish between four horses took minutes to decide or because the mare was paying $51 for the win on TAB Fixed Odds.

It was her first race under the name of Robert Anderson who took over training duties after his wife Trish succumbed to cancer just before Christmas.

“There will be no better win in Australasia today,” race caller Alan Hull declared once the result had been announced.

Long-time friend of the Anderson family, jockey Brad Clark, was aboard for the win and was clearly moved.

“She was one of the first trainers I ever rode for,” he said. “It was special to get the win.”

Chloe’s Puppet, who is named after Trish and Robert’s daughter, looked beaten with 100m to go but in the shadow of the winning post she lifted and it was enough.

It prompted many at the track and those watching on elsewhere to declare a sign from heaven.

The unlikely win was the mare’s first in eight starts.
