Toeroek stays hot, DT honoured: SA weekend racing wrap

Jake Toeroek continued his impressive late season form in the saddle with a double at Morphettville Parks on Saturday.

Toeroek has recorded eight wins from his past 19 rides (including four placings), and Saturday's double took him to 21 city wins for the season, surpassing his 2019-20 mark.

Both wins were in combination with Richard and Chantelle Jolly, the first coming via Somewatt Fabulous who recorded a smart win on debut.

Unwanted in betting, the son of Astern sat off the speed before getting the better of Strike Award deep in the straight. Toeroek  followed that up to win with Poysed To Rein later in the day who continued her love for the Parks track with her third win from five starts.

“We were pretty confident going in,’’ co-trained Chantelle Jolly said of Poysed To Rein.

“It’s the first time she’s been fully sound…. she’s got a bad habit of missing the kick, we’ve worked really hard with her to get her right.

“She’s goes really well first-up,’’ she said.

The most emotional win of the day came with Pearl Bandit’s win in the David ‘DT’ Thomas Memorial Handicap.

The well-backed Pearl Bandit won impressively, and jockey Jason Holder producing a fitting tribute for the for TRSA/Racing SA staff member David Thomas as they passed the winning post.

And there was good new from a breeding perspective with the announcement that Akeed Mofeed would return to stand in SA next season.

The Hong Kong Derby and Hong Kong Cup has produced stakes winners Assertive Approach and Jyoti and will be back at Goldin Farms to stand for $8800.

Akeed Mofeed had success on the track in SA on Sunday with I'm Kenny winning at Port Augusta, while his best off the track success came in the 2019 Magic Millions Adelaide Sale, with a colt out of Calemore selling for $200,000 to Sydney trainer Gary Moore.
