08/02/02 North Bay Back for Lightning Dash
r5northboy.jpg (16549 bytes)Tony McEvoy will be hoping his great recent run can continue tomorrow when he attempts to win his first Group One race by saddling up North Boy in the $402,000 Lightning Stakes at Flemington.

Figures released earlier this week by the Racing Services Bureau indicated that McEvoy was the leading trainer by wins and placings in Victoria for the month of January.

McEvoy said the last month had been a good time for the stable and he was very much looking forward to the near future. He is also excited about the chances of his youngster North Boy.

"We are looking forward to the next few months of racing starting with North Boy in tomorrow’s Lightning Stakes at Flemington," McEvoy said.

McEvoy is quietly confident about the chances of his young star and feels the short trip will suit tomorrow.

"He looks to have come back superbly after his break. While this will be the toughest race of his career up until now we are certainly hopeful of capping of a good start to the year with a group one win," McEvoy explained.

If North Boy does win not only will it be McEvoy's first Group One win, but it would be the fifth success for Lindsay Park.

PICS - Quentin Lang.
