Wagga trainer Dave Heywood believes there is more wins in store for Frenze Hall after her victory at Murrumbidgee Turf Club on Thursday.
Frenze Hall ($4.40) broke through for her first win in two years when taking out the Wagga RSL Club & Commercial Club Class Three Showcase Handicap (1200m).
Frenze Hall spent more than 12 months off the scene due to injury but struck at her fourth run back from the long lay-off.
The five-year-old mare had little luck when a fast-finishing second at Wagga last start and Heywood was confident she would take beating this time around.
“I said to Bek before, all that will beat us is bad luck,” Heywood said.
“It was a good field but she’s a pretty good horse. I was a little bit worried they weren’t going quick enough because I thought all we needed was for them to go quick.
“She’s had a lot of bad luck but three out of her four runs back this time have been pretty good.”
Ridden by Rebeka Prest, Frenze Hall nabbed Lord Denman ($3.60) in the shadows of the post, while Captain Charlie ($17.00) ran a good race to dead heat for third with Danetrille ($16.00).
It was Frenze Hall’s third win from 13 career starts and Heywood plans to target next year’s Country Championships heat with the mare.
“She’ll have no problem running 1400 metres that’s for sure,” he said.
Corowa trainer Geoff Duryea also experienced success at Wagga on Thursday with Dottledo leading all the way to win the Class One & Maiden Showcase Plate (1600m).
