Perry 'Will Walk Right In' To Gunnedah Today

By Tony Megahey

Multiple Group-winning trainer Paul Perry and young South African jockey Keagan Latham are primed to dominate this afternoon’s Gunnedah Jockey Club TAB meeting.

They combine in seven of the nine races on a capacity program at the popular north-eastern NSW track. Most will be favourites and Perry, who is having a successful streak with his big team on tracks in proximity to his Newcastle base, is confident of another winning day.

Latham, a former champion South African apprentice, is having a working holiday from his lengthy Irish riding contract, and has been getting ample opportunities from leading stables.

“No stars among them, but you’ve got to get them a run somewhere, they’re well placed in this country grade, and most will be hard to beat,” Perry offered. “My best for the day, I’d say is Walk Right In, he’s race fit coming off short course wins at Muswellbrook and Quirindi and should box seat from the draw. Keagan rides well and knows the horse.”

Significantly the 24-year old Latham rode Walk Right In for both wins where he contested the lead and finished off well enough as a short priced favourite. The three- year- old gelding carries 59.5kg from barrier one in a BM 70 1000m dash.

Latham rides Old Friends for Perry in the second, Assergi in the third, I Am the Fox contest race six, Torquay in the seventh, Italian Son in race eight, and Time Stripper in the final event.
