A Race Of Firsts at Moonee Valley

The Hafele Handicap at Moonee Valley on Friday night will be remembered fondly by the connections of My Option. The daughter of Danerich gave 16 year-old Swan Hill apprentice Harry Coffey his first city success. Her trainer Darren Weir and the Coffey family go back a long way and it gave Weiry quite a thrill to provide Harry, who suffers from Cystic Fibrosis, his first city winner. It was quite an emotional victory with Harry’s family – father Austy, mum Maree and brother Sam on course to celebrate the victory. Weiry also provided Harry with his first winner when Sauce saluted at the annual non-TAB meeting at Wycheproof on Derby Day 2011. My Option’s win gave her owner/breeders Ted & Frances Powlett, who race her with a number of friends, their first success in town.
