RACE for Fun Club pacer Spirit Of Bendigo ran a credible sixth in her third career start at Nyah last night.
Spirit Of Bendigo, or Addy as she is more commonly known, was forced to the rear of the field after starting from outside of the front row.
She had no luck in running before making ground from the tail of the field in the final 200m. The filly finished 13m behind winner Catchthateye in a mile rate of 2.04.4.
“I was really happy with her,’’ trainer Paul Campbell said of Addy’s run.
“The Nyah track is every bit as tight as Mildura, but this time she was a lot more tractable.
“They were going so slow up front that it was always going to be hard for her to make up ground.
“She finished off the race well, there’s good signs there. We’ll look for another race for her in the next fortnight.”
Meanwhile, Bendigo trainer Bruce Morgan celebrated a rare feat at Nyah last night.
Morgan trained a winner at the first Nyah meeting 47 years ago and also trained a winner at last night’s final meeting at the track.
