TWO winners in four days is a good strike rate when you only have seven horses in work.
To celebrate the victories Hamilton trainer Darren Kolpin is going fishing.
Kolpin, who is also the track manager at Hamilton, will catch up with his old mate David Whitney and dangle a few lines at Kangaroo Island on Saturday.
Promising galloper Wando Bel scored a dogged victory for Kolpin in a $35,000 race over 1100 metres at Warrnambool on Tuesday.
The win followed hot on the heels of his handy mare Jester Halo winning a benchmark 84 race at Morphettville on Saturday.
"Wando Bel has above average ability," he said.
"His form is very strong. He was beaten by a smart horse at his debut run at Warracknabeal.
"We then gave him a good break because he got a virus. His first up run at Bordertown was better then it looked.
"I'm heading over to Kangaroo Island for spot of fishing and it'll give me a bit of time to think where Wando Bel will have his next start.
"He's still learning about racing. He's a big gross horse who needs plenty of work.
"I think he may measure up to city class in Adelaide but for now we'll just take him through his classes in the country."
Wando Bel picked up $19,500 for his connections with his maiden win.
Warrnambool races again on Thursday, February 20.
