Debutant Kicks Carnival Off In Style

Debutant Zeditex kicked the Warrnambool Cup Carnival off in style, winning the 1200m Maiden by a nose over his luckless stablemate Eudoxia. The three-year-old son of Oamaru Force is raced by his breeder Gladys Grentell, who has been involved with horses for many years. Her late husband "Tex," who Zeditex was named after, was a former leading jumps jockey winning the 1963 Grand National Steeple at Flemington on Sir Cameron and five years later an Australian Hurdle on Sprayall. Gladys has been judging equestrian events at Royal Shows for a number of years purchased Zedita with Zeditex in utero for $2,000 at a Inglis Sale in 2008. Unfortunately Gladys couldn’t make it to Warrnambbol and left it to granddaughter Stephanie to accept the trophy. Zeditex was the first leg of a treble for the stable with Magnifique Soleil enhancing his record, winning his fifth race in his last six starts while Hurdy Gurdy Man made his opposition look second rate, winning the last race on the program easily. It was the first time "Weiry" has trained a treble in one day at the time-honoured Carnival.
