Invienna Heading Back To The Country

By Grahame Timbrell

Former Scone trainer Greg Bennett always thought Invienna had the ability to get to a Country Championships final but for one reason or another she never made it.

When Bennett retired from training and left Scone to move north, he and his wife Wendy retained their shares in the mare and sent her to Kris Lees.

In two starts for Lees, Invienna has run a third and a seventh at Canterbury Park but returns to the Upper Hunter Valley on Sunday to run in the $35,000 Godolphin Tiara (1280m) at Muswellbrook.

“I have always thought she was a lovely mare and she was only ever a length or two behind Clearly Innocent,” Bennett said.

“She never had any luck with barriers in the heats of the Country Championships and never had much luck in running. Kris is doing a great job with her and I suggested that if he needed to take her back to the country to try and get a win and boost her confidence I was totally behind him.

“Then she could return to the city. She is well bred and if we can get a couple of more wins out of her she will be a valuable broodmare later on.”

Bennett moved north to join Aquis Farm but that move was short lived and he is now preparing to set up a breaking-in and pre-training centre near Canungra in the Gold Coast hinterland.

Nominations for the Tiara and the other six races on the Muswellbrook program close at 11am on Tuesday (5th September).
