There are literally thousands of races in Australia every year.

Covering pretty much every circumstance of life. So finding something that’s happening for the very first time is rather rare.

Saying that, I think at Narromine today, in the Diggers Cup, we may see a first.

Top bush trainer Cody Morgan, who yesterday was rushed to hospital after an early morning track accident, resulting in a badly smashed leg, will present a horse called WHOSYOURHOUSEMATE (Bahamian Bounty-Starlit Sky) in the Diggers Cup, the main race.

He has the rails draw and leading rider Greg Ryan has the mount.

The horse is starting at Narromine for the very first time, and Morgan, because of his injury, probably wont make the trek to see him in person.

Now, the fact he’s starting at Narromine for the first very time, on a day where his trained is nursing a broken leg, isn’t necessarily the ‘first’ I’m referring to. Although it may well be very rare too.

What struck me is that I doubt any horse who was bred in England, and won his maiden at Southwell in England, before running a great 3rd at the famed and incredibly difficult uphill mile course at Newmarket in England, has ever raced at Narromine before.

This bloke did.

He won 2 of his 6 starts in England before coming to Australia and has won 2 of his 12 starts since arriving here.

But NEVER, while in England, was he ever tried over a sprint trip. In Australia, he was and has won now over 900m at Scone and 1200m at Tamworth.

And both those wins, he ran times that would win this Diggers Cup race over 1300m this afternoon.

He’s currently a $9 chance with PalmerBet, and if he wins, not only will it be yet another little piece of creating history, you just know it will speed up recovery of Morgan’s broken pin.
