Ballarat jockey Will Price is enhancing his standing as one of Victoria's best apprentices each day he goes to the races.
Price again made an impression with a cool ride to get Sangria Miss ($7) home for Kyneton trainer Sue Naylor in Ballarat on Monday.
She prevailed in a blanket finish over Bloomin' Crafty, with Billjim a nod away third in the Boss Executive Group Maiden, 1200m.
Price is apprenticed to his uncle Dan O'Sullivan and only rode his first winner in October last year.
He has already gone past 50 wins to be fifth on the Victorian country jockeys' premiership this season.
WHILE football supporters do not have anything to cheer about at the moment with a COVID-19 shutdown in place, it was a different story for some members of a Wimmera club on Monday.
Part-owned by a "Rupanyup Panthers" syndicate, Give Val A Ring momentarily changed that when the three-year-old filly scored in the Cervus Equipment Benchmark58 Handicap, 1400m.
Give Val A Ring is trained on the track by Mitch Freedman and brought up her second career win in seven starts.
She also brought up a double jockey Luke Nolen.
He also scored on Rose Of Sebring ($2.60) in the Magic Millions 2yo fillies' Maiden, 1200m, for the stable of David and Ben Hayes, and Tom Dabernig.
THE day finished strongly for hometown trainers with Nigel Blackiston, Archie Alexander and Symon Wilde, who has a Ballarat satellite stable to complement his Warrnambool base, also each saddling up a winner on the nine-car program.
