Promising young stayer Naadji showed some of his potential with a gutsy win on Saturday at Flemington. Jockey Dwayne Dunn was blocked for a run in the straight but weaved through along the inside and grabbed victory right on the post.
Congratulations to the winning owners Paul Felgate, Scott Brown, Jon and Karen Sprague and Jenny Laming.
It was the first city winner for Paul Felgate and hopefully there are many more to come. It also capped off a fairytale day for owner Scott Brown who owned his first and second city winners within the space of an hour and Scott’s son Matthew also strapped his first city winner.
The celebrations were slightly on hold straight after the race as Naadji had to survive a protest from the third horse De Arias.
Naadji is now starting to build a strong record and his owners are very excited about the future!!
