BY CAUSING a boilover in Maryborough on Friday Chinski provided the platform for a proud mother-daughter moment.
Scoring at $31 on the Tote, Chinski was partnered by the recently-licenced Leilani Justice, who was having just her fourth drive.
Naturally thrilled to register her maiden victory, Justice was all-the-more excited by the fact her mother, Dianne Giles, trains the gelding.
Adding to the moment, Justice was sporting her grandfather’s racing colours.
“You could say three generations were involved in the win as I wore the colour my grandfather, mum’s father, wore,” Justice said.
“To get my first win is very exciting and something I will never forget.
“My Mum being the trainer makes it even more special.”
Enjoying the run of the race behind the leader, Charlie Walker, Chinski finished strongly along the sprint lane to complete a two-metre win from the front runner.
Sir Eros was a short half-head away third.
Co-owned by Giles and Justice, the son of Peak Dnk rated 2:01.5 over 2190 metres.
“I thought he was over the odds,” Justice said. “He won two starts ago and last time around he never got a clear run.
“He got the perfect trip this time and was able to make the most of it.”
As her surname suggests, Justice is a member of the highly-successful family, being ‘sired’ by multiple premiership winning horseman, Lance.
