Griffin victorious at Wairoa

Well related galloper Griffin picked up the third win of his career at Wairoa on Thursday when he took out the Paddy Kennedy Memorial (1300m).

The Jamie Richards-trained runner was sent forward early by apprentice jockey Chelsea Burdan to sit outside the leader Ottavio.

The full-brother to three-time Group One winner Gingernuts took the lead turning for home and was able to hold out is rivals to win by half a length over Nuclear Fusion, with a further neck back to Comeback in third.

“He’s been a bit of a slow maturing horse, but he is getting there,” stable representative Paul Richards said. “Chelsea rode him exactly how we talked about and did a good job.”
