How about the reception Penshurst owner-trainer John Burow received after Good Yarn won the Rock’s Retreat Stake (600 metres) at Tara Raceway last Sunday.
This was the five-dog grade five bitches race where the four-year-old outsider Good Yarn, out of the winner’s list since last September, swept around the field off the back before running out a three length winner in 35.69 seconds.
But the round of applause a puffing Burow received as he made the long walk (his words) from the 600 metre boxes back to the finish line was surely worthy of any Mount Gambier Cup winner.
Then a series of high fives as he walked along the finish line fence just topped off the whole experience. And didn’t he lap it up!
