Cheers, Gin Wins For Alfred

Alfred Nobel gained a long distance Easter Monday double when Orange Strudel, the $2.50 favourite, won the EBM Corporate Handicap (1100m) at York in WA.

Alfred Nobel’s Gin In The Inn won the Handicap (1200m) at Redcar in England on Easter Monday in a slick 1.10.77.

Gin In The Inn (6/1) was held-up back in the field under jockey Paul Hanagan but finished hard when clear to beat Lucky Beggar (6/1, by Verglas) and El Principe (13/2, by Strategic Prince) by 2 1/4 lengths.

The 4Y0 is trained at Malton, North Yorkshire, by Richard Fahey, who has prepared more than 2,500 winners on the flat and over the jumps, including Group winners in the UK, Ireland, France and Canada.

The superbly-bred Group 1 winning Alfred Nobel, who stands at Lynward Park, Bullsbrook, has sired 58 individual winners and is set for a bright future in WA having covered substantial books of quality mares over the past two seasons.
