I guess we’re no different from the hospitality industry right now,” Beer said. “We’re a little short right now, we have two girls who have COVID and two more are awaiting testing.” You have jockeys standing left, right and center. You only see in the form guide, you don’t see all the track runners and stable men fighting behind the scenes. Sandkuhl’s effort aboard Tullaghan was superb. She kept her cool after not finding the front and remained stable aboard the horse as she rounded Queanbeyan’s tight turn at the top of the straight. “I told her to lead on it, and obviously she didn’t, and when that horse circled around her she never panicked, she just kept the horse in a good rhythm and that ‘ was the winning shot, “Beer said of his apprentice.” It’s great for these apprentices to win on the long hauls.
