continued their early domination of the Mildura Cup Carnival when Spring Water scored a
narrow win in the Tooheys New Handicap over 1400 metres.
The win also continued a great couple of days for talented hoop Brad
Rawiller, notching up his fourth winner for the Cup Carnival.
Spring Water came with a well timed run to get up in a
driving finish to down the Neil Dyer trained Tonvenor and the local hero Spanish Arms. On
the post Spring Water had a neck to spare over Tonvenor. They were three quarters of a
length clear of the rest.
Trained by Swan Hill based Gail Trevena, Spring Water scored
his second win from as many starts this month.
On July 8, the seven-year-old gelding thrashed Secretary
General over 1400 metres at Swan Hill, winning by close to three lengths.
For Rawiller the Open Handicap success followed up the
earlier win of the Ross McDonald trained Vocals. He picked up the ride on race day after
David O'Heare was left stranded in Mount Gambier after a flights bungle.
Yesterday Rawiller, along with Dwayne Dunn, scored a double.
On the first day of the carnival he was successful on Tara's Pride and Baldock for the
South Australian Oaks winning trainer Darren Weir.
Rawiller will be hoping his luck extends to the feature race
of the afternoon, the $52,500 Eat Well Live Well Mildura Cup (2000m). His ride in the big
race is the Neil Dyer trained mare Mrs. Bently.
