The Flyer’s second horse also wins at the Singapore races!
Posted by Vietnam Swans on February 22, 2013
Official Club Legend, Dave “Flyer” Kainey is also a legend at the races in Singapore.
On 30 March last year, the Flyer’s Excel n Strike was first past the post at the Singapore Turf Club. Possibly the most famous Swannie of all, Gus, was also trackside to witness the historic occasion. After the victory, Gus asked the trainer whether we were all looking at the next Black Caviar (to which the Flyer snapped, “Shut up Gus. Who said you could talk to the trainer? It’s not even your horse!” Click here for the full story.).
This week, the Flyer returned to the Singapore Turf Club – this time to watch a second horse he part owns, Dazzling Dame. (For the record, Gus was not invited on this occasion.)
In the lead up to the big race, the official word was that “Dazzling Dame is back at it this Monday, 11 February in Race No. 7 at 3:55pm. She has drawn Barrier No. 5 so we can expect her to jump well and hopefully get a nice position on settling. With a little cover in the run and a solid start we would like to think she will be working to the line a lot stronger (than previously)”
Former Hanoi Prez, Mark “Willy” Williams, now back in Melbourne, picks up the story after the Race in an email to the Flyer:
“Daaaaaazzzling flame!! You would not believe it, I was down the local putting a few bets on and saw the Singapore races. Without pay’n too much attention, I boxed the three favourites and, BANG, out of nowhere comes this horse No. 9!!
“Look up at the screen: DAZZLING DAME!!!! It was pay’n something like $90 odd plus in Sydney and some $50 or more here in Melbourne.
“Unbelievable mate but awesome for you!! Congrats.
“Go you Swannies!!”
