Champion jockey Chris Munce was quick to praise his wife Kathy after Twisted Mountain’s record-breaking win at Eagle Farm on Wednesday.

Munce took Twisted Mountain ($4) straight to the front and he led all the way to win by 10 lengths over Clever One ($8) in the Quest Breakfast Creek Handicap (1000m).

Twisted Mountain was racing for just the second time in 12 months after being transferred from NSW trainer Anne-Marie Ruttley and set a class record time of 57.19 seconds.

His win was a family affair as Munce rides the gelding in all his work, Kathy straps him and Kathy’s father Barry Mitchell trains Twisted Mountain.

“Kathy deserves plenty of credit as she does a lot of work around the stables and in particular with Twisted Mountain,” Munce said.

“A few people reckon she also works as a mediator between Barry and me at trackwork but I don’t know if that is right.”

Mitchell said Twisted Mountain’s effort had extra merit considering he had to carry 59kg and was having only his fourth race start.

Trainer Robert Heathcote will raise the bar for impressive three-year-old Hopfgarten after he made it a hat-trick of wins in the Gallopers $11.95 Meals Handicap (1500m).

“I could have run him on Saturday in a three-year-old (race) over 1350 metres but he needed at least the 1500 metres,” Heathcote said.

“He will have his next start in the Gunsynd Classic over 1600 metres in a fortnight.”

Heathcote won the Gunsynd Classic with Trump two years ago and believes Hopfgarten is a similar style of horse who could develop into a Queensland Guineas contender in the winter.

Trainer Len Treloar hopes stayer Excellent Al ($10) will regain his confidence after winning the Glenlogan Park Stud Handicap (2200m).

“We were about to rename him Unexcellent Al. But all jokes aside we thought he would be a top stayer but he lost all confidence. Hopefully this will turn him around,” Treloar said.
