Sadler's Wish gets up for Quinn

MARC Quinn continued on his winning way when Sadler's Wish just got up in a deceptive finish to win the Port Macquarie City Bowling Club Benchmark 50 (2012m) in track record time.

Last Saturday Quinn won with Pentasia at Rosehill.

Sadler's Wish, ridden by Raymond Spokes, dived on the line to win by half a head and catch the Tas Morton trained Belaction (Pietro Romeo) which had tried to lead all the way.

Spokes said he was confident he had won.

"It took us a lot of work to get past the leader though," he said.

Quinn said he has always had an opinion of Sadler's Wish, a half sister to the good mare Silk And Money which his late father Pat trained.

"She had a paddock accident as a two-year-old and was out of action for a long time and then I had to rush her as a late three-year-old to try and get a BOBS win out of her," Quinn said.

"I have been able to give her a good solid foundation this time and there is another race over a similar journey here next month (December 17) and again here at home on New Years Day.

"We have a few options with her."
