Despirito breaks through at Mackay

It was a a well deserved win for a horse that has shown so much promise in his racing career to date. DESPIRITO placed in 8 of his 12 starts including strong performances at the Sunshine Coast and Toowoomba against high quality fields. Justin Stanley was outstanding on the Top Echelon gelding getting him into the sweet seat during transit before threading the needle and ensuring that powerful finish was there over the last 200m. He is a horse that can really go on with it now and this result is a testament to the patience and hard work put in by Jared Wehlow and his team.
