Betcha Flying Earns Dominic Tourneur’s Confidence for May 2 Race
TAREN POINT, New South Wales – Betcha Flying will be the racehorse that Dominic Tourneur will ride at the 2020 Schweppes Oaks. This competition will take place on Saturday, May 2, at the Morphettville Racecourse. Tourneur has spoken regarding his faith in the three-year-old filly that is one of the charges of Chris Waller. The jockey expressed his appreciation of getting the rare opportunity to ride Betcha Flying in the 2,000-metre weekend horse race happening in Adelaide, South Australia. Plus, he relayed that the Flemington filly has a great chance.
Tourneur is chasing his second victory at the horse race with the registered name of Australasian Oaks. Based on the news by Australian horse racing news and information portal, Racenet, in 2013, the rider was victorious in the Schweppes Oaks with Maybe Discreet, the racehorse that Phillip Stokes moulded.
During the early wagering on the 2020 Schweppes Oaks, Betcha Flying is a $9.50 chance. Last Saturday, the bay-coloured daughter of We Betcha and Uncle Mo scored more than 1,700 metres at her Flemington Racecourse home track in Melbourne. She is going to back up one week later in her assignment with Tourneur that has $400,000 in cash prize waiting to be won, according to Australian horse betting tips and news website JustHorseRacing.com.au.
Tourneur affirmed that he does not feel concerned about the one-week back-up for Betcha Flying following her victory the previous weekend. He cited that he is aware of how well Waller had educated the female sporting horse. Plus, the racehorse trainer’s record had spoken for itself, Tourneur remarked. The horseman pointed out that he has every faith in Waller’s training capacity to get Betcha Flying to back up. Tourneur said that, after all, Waller is reputable, and riding for this racehorse trainer provides him substantial confidence in the Saturday match.
In recent weeks, Betcha Flying had spent considerable amounts of time in a horse float. Before her Flemington triumph, she made it to the fourth spot in the Group 3 Adrian Knox Stakes. The winner of this recent horse race held in Sydney was high-class female racehorse Colette.
