KILMORE trainer Karyn Brewster wasn’t popular with punters after the last race at Wangaratta on Saturday.

Brewster saddled-up Darci’s Money to win the Financial Momentum 0-58 Handicap (1170m) after failing to beat a runner home at his past two starts.

The nine-year-old Darci Brahma gelding, paying $113.10 on Supertab, stormed down the outside to run down the $2.90 favourite Our Cashier to win by ¾-length with Pacific Tycoon ($18) a similar distance away third.

The gelding was ridden by apprentice Jessica Eaton.

Brewster said the reason for the form turnaround was the Good 3 track.

“He’s hopeless on anything softer. He just needs conditions to suit.

“Track rider Chris Doherty and Ray Sonogan have been a great assistance to me,” Brewster, who works at the Kilmore District Hospital said.

Darci’s Money was a $100,000 purchase by the former Sydney trainer, the late Bede Murray, at the 2010 New Zealand Bloodstock Select Sale and later in the gelding’s career he was trained in Adelaide by David Jolley.

Brewster has won three races with the gelding.

Bendigo winners

Seymour trainers Alan Diggins and the father/son partnership of Lee & Shannon Hope bookended the Bendigo program last Wednesday.

The two stables were successful with Hegemon ($4.40) and Balcazar ($4.20) respectively.
The latter, luckless at his previous start, was ridden by  Group 1-winning jockey Jordan Childs.
