Exciting Pinjarra Win For Real Honour

Real Honour was our only runner at Pinjarra today, and the mare didn’t disappoint, winning the De Rosa Highway Motors Handicap, over 1400 metres.

In a very competitive race, Real Honour was settled well back in the field by jockey Shaun O’Donnell as Our Chief set a fast pace. As the horses reached the home turn the mare was still 11th, but Shaun moved her to the outside, then asked for an effort. Real Honour responded in brilliant fashion, sprinting home strongly to hit the front 50 metres out and win by 1 length, going away.

Real Honour was home bred by her owners, Serge and Sophie Madrigali, and is a typical Verglas. Shaun O’Donnell has a particularly fine record with the Verglas breed, and has struck up a good relationship with Real Honour, having been successful both times he has ridden her. No doubt there is more to come!
