Silvera's stunning return

Winning jockey Jamie Kah gave the ultimate compliment after winning on Silvera at Morphettville Parks on Saturday, September 16.

“This horse can win a Group race,” Kah said on returning to scale.

A $4.20 chance, Silvera sprinted home powerfully to score a 1-1/4 length win in the Hughes Limousine Handicap (1400m) beating Spy Decoder ($26) with Raheeba ($7.50) and Rothmore ($8.50) deadheating for third a neck away.

Stable foreman John Cornell said Kah had been very positive about the future for the grey four-year-old and was sure he could win a feature race.

“Jamie rode him perfectly and he was way too strong,” Cornell said.

“Tony has always had a big opinion of Silvera but I’m sure the decision to have him gelded after his last preparation will see him find his form on the track.

“He had a big weight, poor draw and was first up today but lengthened brilliantly in the home straight.

“He gathered the leaders in quickly and Jamie never had to really extend him.”

Cornell said Silvera would monitored after today’s win before a future campaign was planned.

The four-year-old is owned by the Peachester Lodge syndicate, managed by Mrs Linda Huddy.
