Savvy Henry Race net Article below................................
A patient but vigorous ride from Michael Walker was enough to get four-year-old Savvy Henry home for Roy Higgins & Wylie Dalziel Racing Team together with our trainer Leon Corstens in the feature of the day at Mornington on Sunday, the $30,000 Bayside Jeep Showcase 0-64 Handicap (2000m).
With Banker On Nine and El Gaucho setting a hectic pace in front, Walker bided his time on Savvy Henry ($8) before taking over early in the straight.
With Walker throwing everything at him, the Savabeel gelding kept finding to hold off the Stephen Theodore-trained Twin Tea Bags ($51) and the Len Xuereb-trained Rapete ($7.50).
After the race, Walker told TVN's Mick Sharkie he'd been surprised by the speed at which the leaders ran the early sections.
"Obviously on paper there was going to be a lot of speed. I knew they were going to run but probably not that quick," he said.
"As soon as they anchored up a bit at the half-mile (800m) I decided to bring him off the fence. He's a bit of a one-paced horse ... it was a really good win today actually.
"He's a lazy horse so I was at him, throwing everything bar the kitchen sink.
"It was a good effort. Leon's team is going really well and I'm lucky enough to be riding a lot of them."
Savvy Henry, who was selected for only 50K FOH by the Roy Higgins and Wylie Dalziel Racing Team, has had nine starts for two wins, three minor placings and $33,920 in prizemoney.
Savvy Henry will now have a well earned break before resuming at the back end of Spring to have a summer Racing preparation.........
