03/06/02 Park's In Form Run Continues
0519bpark.jpg (10817 bytes)Victorian jockey Brian Park continued his incredible recent form with two winners in Melbourne over the weekend.

Park rose to cult status at Morphettville during the Adelaide Cup Carnival when he rode his first Group winner and then doubled that tally on the same day thanks to wins with Troubles (Yallambee Classic) and the Carlton Draught Stakes (Firetaine).

But a week later he achieved his greatest thrill in racing when he piloted the local Zip Zip Aray to victory in the Honda Goodwood Handicap.

Park could hardly explain the present purple patch of success he has enjoyed in Victoria and South Australia.

"It's certainly been a good time for me," Park said after winning at Caulfield yesterday. "You can never ride too many winners though."

Like he did on Troubles in the Group Two Yallambee Classic, Park scored a winner after a lucky pick up ride at Sandown on Saturday.

Cranbourne based trainer Grant Dalziel didn't have any second thoughts about engaging Park to ride his galloper Flying Ed after it was known Peter Mertens was indisposed.

"Why wouldn't you put him (Park) on," Dalziel asked. "He's the hottest jock around at the moment, that's for sure."

The result of that race is now history and Flying Ed swooped down the outside of the field to impressively win the Lonsdale Handicap over the outsider Aggie's Heart.

Park then backed up his winning style at Caulfield yesterday when he booted home the Greg Eurell trained Darting Princess to win the sixth event.
