Tony Gollan in homecoming win at Toowoomba

TOOWOOMBA Apr 6 2019

Consistent mare Splitter gave trainer Tony Gollan got a welcome home present and might go on to continue a history of smart mares winning the AG Rigging Handicap (1300m).

Gollan, who is well on the way to winning six straight Brisbane premierships, trained in Toowoomba for 10 years before shifting camp to Eagle Farm in 2010.

"It is always good to come home and win a race on Weetwood day. The whole town gets behind the meeting and it is nice to be a part of it," Gollan said.

"Splitter has been consistent without getting the result but things worked out today.

He saddled Splitter ($8), who got up in the last stride, and Light Up The Room ($3.10) who had no luck in finishing fifth.

The race is for fillies and mares and has a history of producing good horses including last year's winner Another Dollar who ended up running second in the Group One Queensland Oaks.

"I think it might prove a good race again," Gollan said.

Troubled trainer Ben Currie had a change of luck when Want To Bolt ($3) won the Gemlife Handicap (1300m).

Currie's filly Howwonderfullifeis was narrowly beaten in the first race and his hot favourite Crusher was scratched at the barrier in the AG Rigging Handicap.

Currie, who is facing 42 separate charges laid by stewards, has now trained 71 winners at Toowoomba this season and 125 overall.
