12/06/02 Errol Earns Reprieve With Flemington Win
A gelding who's career looked all but over two starts ago is now the apple of his trainer's eye after becoming her second city winner when successful at Flemington on Monday.

Cranbourne based trainer Rhonda Mangan, who's tasted success in town in the past with Terouge, was all smiles when Errol scored his second straight upset win.

A three-year-old gelding by Prince of Birds, Errol was about to be "sacked" before he bolted in at Bendigo at his previous start before Flemington.

"It was quite frustrating actually," Mangan recalled after the Flemington win. "He was galloping well on the track but he was basically going terrible on the track."

"So we decided to put the blinkers on and school him over some jumps and the rest is now history," she added.

Mangan and her part owner were considering starting Errol at the country meeting at Mortlake a day earlier.

"We were going to run at Mortlake, but we noticed this race (at Flemington) was a Super Vobis event and he was qualified," Mangan said. "I'm glad we chose this way," she said with a smile.

Errol's win in the Super Vobis Rod Johnson Handicap (2000m) netted connections some $55,500.
