THE win of Dieberdevil in the Vale
The race was named in honour of the late who was killed in a car accident about two weeks ago.
Medhurst was a popular and talented trainer-driver based in the south of the state.
So when the nominations were called for the race, trainer , could hardly wait to enter his in-form six-year-old Dieberdevil that looked well suited to the conditions of the event over 2090 metres.
That’s how it panned out with Dieberdevil stepping straight to the front from his front-row draw and once in front the gelding was rated superbly by Tim Yole who, in recent time, has taken his driving skills to a new level.
Dieberdevil was claimed by from a claiming race in Launceston at the end of May this year.
With the exception of the gelding’s second start for his new owners Dieberdevil has not missed a cheque in 14 outings and this latest win was his third in succession.
“The horse is flying and a few of his owners are first-timers and they obviously are rapt in him,” trainer said.
The trainer also became emotional after the win as his family and the Medhursts are relatively close.
