Roughly three weeks after Cousin Dylan Ferguson drove his first winner, Micheal has done the same.
The sixteen-year-old son of Brian Ferguson and nephew of top reinsman of Peter Ferguson was successful on the Gary Hall Snr trained Yougottawanna at Williams in Western Australia on Sunday.
Ferguson sent Yougottawanna forward from his handy alley to find the front, before dictating terms and kicking clear on the home bend to win by 9.7 metres. Micheal, like Dylan, celebrated the win with a brilliant victory salute.
Ferguson, who moved to Perth fourteen years ago with his parents, had earlier in the day finished third aboard All In Grin, who is trained by his father Brian.
Ferguson still attends Cecil Andrews Senior High School, but helps out Gary Hall Snr during the school holidays.
Meanwhile I’m Themightyquinn’s little brother Themightynadal, who was purchased by Hall Snr out of the Premier Yearling Sales in Christchurch, got his career of to the best possible start by a winning his debut earlier in the card.
