TIMPERLEY Salutes at Nowra

Jul 03, 2021

It's been a long time between drinks for Timperley, whose only other win was in 2017 in Queensland. Transferred to the Austin stables at the start of 2021, he has made good progress, placing twice in 6 starts before finishing in front last Friday.

An emergency runner, Timperley gained a start in the Heavy 9 conditions and with the Austin Stables' apprentice Julia Presits in the saddle, jumped only fairly to take a rear position over the 1200m gallop.  Still 9th at the 400m, Julia made her move on straightening and found a gap off the rail. Timperley kept improving, hitting the front and fending off late finishers to take out the event.

Congratulations to his owner James Critchley!
