Hunter North West Trio Head Into Battle Side By Side

By Geoff Newling

Radiant Choice, Vineyard and Willyama are a trio of Hunter and North West Racing Association three-year-olds all coming off successful last start runs and wins at Tamworth heading into Saturday’s $60,000 TAB Highway Handicap (1400m) at Rosehill Gardens.

Armidale trained Radiant Choice won a 1400m Class 3 at Tamworth on May 15 when Tamworth gelding Vineyard finished a gallant second to him while Willyama, a three-year-old daughter of Al Maher, also won the same day at Tamworth for Scone trainer Mary Moses.

The trio of HNWRA three-year-olds have drawn alongside each other, Willyama in seven, Stirling Osland’s Radiant Choice in eight and Craig martin’s Vineyard in nine.

Vineyard is a son of Benardini with two wins from his seven starts, Willyama has also won twice and Radiant Choice, a son of son of Choisir, has racked up almost $60,000 in prizemoney.

Both Craig Martin and Stirling Osland also have nominated horses for next Tuesday’s seven-race TAB meeting at Armidale.

“Stirling has a heap in,” said Armidale Jockey Club secretary Jim Dedes.

“Six or seven. He’s also got Radiant Choice down there in the Highway. Hope he wins for him, he’s been going well, training a lot of winners everywhere. Has got something like 20 horses in work here now too.”

Dedes said the AJC “had to extend five of the seven races and ended up getting an extra 20”.

“The track should be good. We had a real good frost here this morning, the worst so far and the track has really browned off now although it’s still got a good grass cover. “

The Armidale track is rated a Good 4.
