LIGHTLY-raced sprinter Inn Keeper may be Brisbane bound for the winter after scoring an impressive victory for Warrnambool trainer Symon Wilde at Caulfield on Saturday.
Wilde hinted following Inn Keeper’s win over Murphy”s Reward in the $100,000 restricted race that the four-year-old could head up north if he wins his next Melbourne start.
“We’ve got a few options open for Inn Keeper,” he said.
“One of those is to go up to Brisbane but he must win his next start down here before we consider it.
“I think there’s plenty of upside to Inn Keeper.

“I was a bit worried when Murphy’s Reward came up to him at the 150 metre mark but he was just too strong in the run to the line.”
Wilde gave credit to jockey Linda Meech for her winning ride on Inn Keeper.
“Linda’s had six rides for six wins on Inn Keeper,” he said.
“It was a perfect ride by Linda. She’s got a wonderful understanding of Inn Keeper.”
Meanwhile, Darren Weir’s satellite foreman Jarrod McLean was delighted with the results produced by horses trained at the Warrnambool stable.
Camdus and Peaceful State were successful at Morphettville while Platinum Angel and Lucky For All won at Caulfield. “Camdus is a good honest horse,” he said.
