Arpeggio Comes Out On Top

For a couple of years now two brothers Chris and Tim Malone have argued as to who has the better horse. Chris has a share in the talented Starcraft filly Arpeggio while Tim races the consistent but unlucky Eudoxia. Arpeggio was due to race at Ballarat last week but after drawing a wide barrier, she was scratched and saved for Donald, resulting in a showdown with Eudoxia. Both horses headed into the Fillies & Mares Maiden with three placings from four starts. A masterstroke decision by trainer Darren Weir to lead on Arpeggio resulted in that filly hanging on to win by half a length over Eudoxia who experienced traffic problems. They hadn’t even crossed the line when Tim’s phone started to ring. He knew it was his brother Chris to ‘rub salt into the wounds’. Arpeggio, a $26,000 purchase by John Foote at a Inglis Scone Select Yearling Sale, was also the first winner for the fledging ‘Roll The Dice’ Syndications, managed by Steve Travaglia and Leigh Saville (who coincidentally also has a small interest in Eudoxia). The only other runner to carry their distinct blue with a red dice colours to date is Lovasova, was a eye catching third on debut at Hamilton.
