PROMINENT horseman Ryan Hryhorec enjoyed a stellar evening at Globe Derby.
With several solid chances on the card, Hryhorec finished last night with a training double and a driving treble.
“I knew I had a few good prospects, but things still have to go your way,” Hryhorec said. “Luckily I got a few breaks and came away with some wins.
“A couple of those were upsets, which just shows you never what may happen on the night.”
Darkndapper opened Hryhorec’s account when driven a treat by premier reinswoman Dani Hill.
Restrained towards the tail of the field from barrier six as Celestial Daybreak led from the pole, Darkndapper was angled three-wide without cover along the back straight.
Sustaining a solid sprint, the son of Shadow Play bullocked his way to a half-head win from Ultimate Won, with Wroxton Steel two metres away third.
“He is in sensational form,” Hryhorec said. “Since putting Dani on him he has gone from strength to strength.
“I don’t know if he has turned the corner or Dani is better suited to him, but she’s had four drives behind him for a second at her first drive when he broke and went enormous and three wins.”
The Hryhorec–trained and driven Arakbell then led throughout from the pole to account for Dougs Limousine and Dont Tell Alice in 2:00.4 over 1800 metres.
“He had the draw in his favour and was able to make the most of it,” Hryhorec said.
Hryhorec then combined with horseman Bronte Giorgio to score with Downtown Levi before pairing with Illawong Patrick to win for trainer Robin Maguire.
Downtown Levi upset favourite punters by paying $25.50 on the tote, while Illawong Patrick was a $17.60 chance.
