04/05/02 Zahra Notches First City Treble at Caulfield
r1markzahra.jpg (12165 bytes)Former Perth apprentice Mark Zahra notched up his first metropolitan treble when the Tony McEvoy trained El Nino scored a great win in the May Sprint (1200m) at Caulfield this afternoon.

Already the 19-year-old had ridden "four or five" trebles at tracks in the country and provinicial area but today was his maiden city trio of wins.

"It's certainly been a great day," Zahra said.

Zahra began riding in Perth three years ago and rode his first ever winner at Geraldton in Western Australia.

Despite his great haul today where earlier wins came thanks to The Fatz for Michael Moroney and Russian Caravan for Tony McEvoy, three winners is not Zahra's best winning day.

"I rode for winners once at Wangaratta one day," Zahra said. At that time he was enjoying a six month stint with leading country Victorian trainer Brian Cox.

Zahra wan't overly confident coming to Caulfield today.

"I thought I had some good chances, but they were about 8 or 9/1 chances," he said. "So it was either going to turn out to be a good or bad day."
