Dolendo has triple treat

By GEOFF HEATH

A COPYBOOK ride on Saturday aboard eight-year-old Canny Lad gelding Dasher in the the Commercial Hotel Ulmarra 'Chip In' Cup was the second leg of a winning treble for jockey Marlon Dolendo.

He allowed Dasher to settle behind the other runners until well into the straight where he made ground steadily under his big weight, just collaring Frisco's Deed, who tried to lead all the way.

The three-horse Cup was one of the best races of the afternoon, the trio virtually locked together as they went head and head to the winning post.

Dolendo's other winners were Thanks Be To God for trainer Joseph Golden and Peerless Star for Edward Lancaster.

Peerless Star looked well placed on Saturday, dropping back to Class 2 after a close fourth to Cosmic Star in a Class 3 1400m event at Port Macquarie on March 4.

nTWO young apprentices are moving out of the area to finish their indentures.

Masashi Yoshinaga will move to Brisbane and finish his time under leading Queensland trainer John Wallace, while Patrick Murphy will move to Tamworth and finish his time with Mark Mason.

I am sure that everyone connected with racing in the Northern Rivers area wishes them both the best of luck in their careers.
