On Saturday at Kenilworth Lucinda Woodruff became the third consecutive member of her particular racing dynasty to train a winner, following in the footsteps of the late Terrance Millard, and her father Geoff.
The gutsy but slightly eccentric grey gelding Worlds Your Oyster was the equine in question as he virtually made all to win the sixth, a 1000m Pinnacle Stakes.
As the delighted young lady posted on Facebook:
A day to remember for the rest of my life will be the day I trained my first winner as a fully licensed trainer and what a special horse to have done it for me
Worlds Your Oyster recorded his 7th career victory under his favorite pilot Greg Cheyne over the Kenilworth 1000m in a highly contested pinnacle stakes. Well done to his wonderful owners James and Lee Ann Drew , Mike Fullard and Clive Campbell.
Oyster is the son of Ideal World born and bred out at Klawervlei Stud and well done to them too.
Most importantly thank you to everyone for the over whelming support and messages as I embark on my new career and to my team at home who handle this boy so well
