Stable Wins Victoria Premiership

 With the completion of the 2012/13 racing season on Wednesday, Darren Weir secured his first Victoria Trainers Premiership. Having 176 wins throughout the state, he ended up nine clear of his nearest rival, Peter Moody. Last season was a real ‘breakout’ one for the Ballarat horseman. In addition to the Victoria Trainers Premiership, he saddle a career high number of winners with 183, placing him fourth throughout Australia. He also saddled 44 Metropolitan winners of which 37 came in Melbourne. There were many highlights, none more so than Platelet’s Group 1 double in Adelaide. This was enhanced by winning his fourth Hobart Cup with Hurdy Gurdy Man, six country cups in Victoria, the Winter Championship Final and emerging star Puissance De Lune’s magnificent win in the Queen Elizabeth Stakes at Flemington on the last day of the Melbourne Cup carnival. This win gave ‘Weiry’ three winners for the week, making him the joint leading trainer.
