TOP jockey Dean Yendall won his fifth Woodford Cup in 11 years when he guided Miss Damita to an easy victory in the $50,000 race at Warrnambool on Thursday. Miss Damita, trained by Mick Price and Michael Kent Jr, defeated Black Sail by more than two lengths with Buena Veloz back in third place. Yendall said the lightly-raced six-year-old mare travelled well in the run. "I was travelling sweetly a long way out,"Yendall told The Standard. "I was very confident I was on the winner. "I was out wide but had cover from the wind. Miss Damita moved into the race well and put them away. "She's had only the two runs from a spell and I think there's more improvement in her. "She should be hard to beat in mares company over say 2000 metres in town." Yendall said he was pleased with his Woodford Cup record. "It's great to win another Woodford Cup," he said. " I've had a bit of luck in the race over the years. "The Woodford Cup is one of the highlight races on the provincial racing calendar over the holiday period." Miss Damita was the second leg of a winning double for the Price, Kent and Yendall combination. They were successful with Swift Sure in the opening race on the eight-race program. Warrnambool trainer Symon Wilde shared the training honours with Price and Kent. Wilde won with As I Please and Glassey Miss. Miss Damita and Glassey Miss were the only two favourites to win on the program. Woodford Racing Club secretary Tom O'Connor said more than 1100 patrons were on-course for the popular meeting.
