Ishinktaatledo has opened her account from her new southern quarters.
The Shinko King mare won twice for Taranaki trainer Allan Sharrock before transferring to Riccarton conditioners Les and Richard Didham and she won Wednesday’s South Rakaia Hotel 1200m at her third appearance for them.
“Allan sent her down to us and said she had ability,” Les Didham said. “The blinkers were on, but I don’t think they made the difference, it was the better track that helped her.”
The stable was also delighted with the Ashburton effort of Twoznotenough, also formerly with part-owner Sharrock, for third in the JJ Ltd Open 2100m.
“It was a top run with 60kg, not many mares win with that weight,” Didham said.
