Darwin trainer Gary Clarke isn’t telling anyone where he goes to look for gold, but it could be worth following him next time he heads into the bush with his prospecting gear.

Clarke was on the gold trail on Saturday when the speedy mare Dream Face, who he trained until a couple of weeks ago, was winning a heat of the Sportingbet Sprint Series (1000m) at Caulfield.

With the name of Melbourne leading trainer Peter Moody now alongside hers, Dream Face showed blistering speed that she sustained all the way to the line.

For Moody the win was a welcome piece of luck.

But nobody knew what it meant to Clarke because no-one knows where he is because his whereabouts are a well-kept secret.

“Gary sent the horse to me because he didn’t have time to bring her down here himself,” Moody said.

“He’s gone off to do some gold mining.”

Moody said Clarke regularly went bush, but kept his destination to himself.

“I’d like to know where he goes and go there too,” Moody said.

“Apparently he does alright at the prospecting, but he doesn’t tell anyone where he goes.

“He’s got a big team of horses in Darwin that he leaves with his wife when he goes out after the gold.”

Dream Face ($5.50), the winner of 10 of her 25 starts in Darwin, scored a 1-1/4-length win from Flash Of Doubt ($12) with a further head to the favourite Sharnee Rose ($4.60) in third place.

Moody said he would keep Dream Face fresh for the next round of 955m races at Moonee Valley.
