  El Tordillo dazzles in comeback win

IPOH:  Apr 17, 2021

 

Trainer Wayne Lim purchased EL TORDILLO for NZ$10,000 as a yearling but he never got to train the New Zealand bred until last month.

From Down Under, the son of Dalghar flew to Singapore to begin his career and won two races in 2018 when trained by Dan Meagher.

In early 2019, EL TRODILLO moved to Malaysia to join Lim Shung You and was an immediate hit, winning his first start in the country followed by a hattrick later in the year.

But it's been 19 months since EL TORDILLO last tasted victory. In that time the New Zealand gelding has managed just one placing.

Wayne Lim finally has a chance to train the horse when EL TORDILLO moved to his yards last month and in his second start for the trainer, the seven-year-old showed some of his old fire when he stormed to a runaway win in a Class 4 - 1400m handicap here today.

Ridden by Harmeet Singh Gill, EL TORDILLO settled well back in the running and was still a long way from the leader at the home turn. Harmeet switched him wide out at the top of the straight.

EL TORDILLO began to open up and quickly swept last the leaders to hit the front at the 150m. He then cleared away to win by 3 1/2 lengths.
