Derry Fires Home In Arrowfield

By Brad Gray

Derryn swooped on his rivals in the $600,000 Arrowfield 3YO Sprint (1200m) getting the better of brave filly Global Glamour at the finish.

The son of Hinchinbrook impressed in the Darby Munro Stakes two starts ago, relishing the wet conditions, before not disgracing himself in the TJ Smith Stakes against older horses on Day One of The Championships.

“He really revelled in the conditions,” said co-trainer David Hayes.

“They back up so well off soft ground. He’s a horse that likes the jar out of the ground, so you have got to take advantage of it when you get it and he’s one of the few here that really loves the ground.

“I think this horse will be perfect for a Newmarket or something like that. He’s never been that far off the Group Ones of his own age, so maybe the Newmarket next year.”

Derryn bounced back to his best in the Arrowfield

It was an early double for jockey Mark Zahra having got two-year-old Shoals home in a photo finish in the Percy Sykes earlier in the day and he was impressed with the colt’s acceleration.

“We just had a nice run, we were wide with cover and was able to sort of just creep around the bend, pull him out up the rise and away he went, he let down nicely,” said Zahra.

“He’s run some good races up here, it was just whether he backed up from the (TJ Smith). Obviously Hayes just had him cherry ripe for today.”
