Wyndham HRC briefs
Moondyne Joe was tender in the off-hind cannon bone area after finishing fifth in the MLT/Three Rivers Hotel Pace at Wyndham yesterday.
``He faltered on the bend,'' driver and co-trainer Terry Chmiel said.
``We'll get some X-rays taken.''
Say My Name ran a gutsy second in the Kindergarten Stakes after racing without cover the whole way. He clocked 1:54.6 (one mile) and was one and a-quarter lengths from winner Itz Bettor To Win.
``Awesome run . . . he never got the trip,'' reinsman John Dunn said of Say My Name.
No Doctor Needed, a 3-year-old son of Mach Three and Molly Darling, won his debut yesterday, cutting out 2400m (mobile) in 2:58.8.
Molly Darling won 24 races in Australasia, including a Breeders' Crown as a 2-year-old and a Nevele R Fillies' Final at three.
No Doctor Needed and Say My Name are trained by Robert Dunn.
