Sauce Gives Harry First Win

It may have been only a once-a-year non TAB meeting at Wycheproof, but for 15-year-old apprentice Harry Coffey who suffers from cystic fibrosis, it will be a day he'll never forget. After making his riding debut three weeks earlier at Manangatang, he landed his first winner last Saturday on Sauce, trained by Darren Weir who's been a long-time friend of the Coffey family from Swan Hill. In fact "Weiry's'' first job was with young Harry's uncle Jack.

Sauce was bought by "Weiry" as a yearling in Tasmania, then given a long time to develop on the family farm at Berriwillock. No doubt he would have started his career earlier than just over a month ago but for hurting a leg when he went through a fence as a young horse.

Several hours after Sauce's easy win, his stablemate Corvidae, ridden by promising Adelaide apprentice Scott Westover, made it five wins from his past six starts when he scored again at Morphettville.
