We all headed off to Bendigo, my home town on Saturday 9th April for Silver's first race at 1600 metres - a much better distance for him. He had already had 3 starts, his first finishing 5th of 9, his second finishing 3rd of 8 and then 2nd out of 11. There was much anticipation, my home town, The Elmore Cup - also home to my family and our race was the Elmore Events Maiden over 1600 metres.
Silver was still back around 10th with only 400 metres go, but he stormed home to win. The feeling of excitement as he finished first was amazing and we were delighted to have been there to see his first win.
