"Amazing Prizemoney" Lures Interstate Training Team To Kembla

Melbourne trainer Ciaron Maher made a promise to Peter James of Greenhaven Park Stud a couple of years ago that he would be training out of Sydney and have runners at Kembla Grange for him - he will finally deliver him that runner in Deelbraka on Saturday.

“We hit a couple of hurdles on the way but Peter, being at Berry, wanted to have runners at Kembla and I remember promising him I would do that for him,” Maher said. “It is really amazing prizemoney when you are racing for $35,000 in a maiden at these tracks and he is the right sort of horse to bring up here because he is also a BOBS horse.

“We gave him a couple of runs in Victoria but since I have had some boxes at Rosehill, we sent him up there and I wanted to find a race at Kembla for him for his first run.”

Maher, who trains in partnership with David Eustace, has been able to book Kathy O’Hara for the Dundeel three-year-old in the South Coast Party Hire Maiden Handicap. It will be Deelbraka NSW debut after a second at Sale and fourth at Donald as a two-year-old.

“I have liked him but he is one of those horses that is just going to develop with a bit of time,” Maher said. “The big track will certainly suit him, but being a Dundeel he is going to be better over further than the 1300m.

“Kathy has ridden him in both his trials up there and I think you will him finishing it off well. He is going to be a nice horse and it would be great to get Peter a win at Kembla because I owe him that.”
