Not put off by a rise in weight, Terindah was tough saluting under the considerable steadier of 61.5kg at Mornington on Sunday – doing a great job having sat wide for much of the race.
Conceding the runner up two kilos and the third horse 6.5kg, Terindah was having just his second run back from a break having been gelded following his previous campaign.
A horse who has always shown ability, Terindah was a five length maiden winner at Kilmore last spring, progressing to prove competitive in town.
"The drop back in grade helped him to get back into the winners stall," said Robbie.
"He had that big weight to contend with but he stuck to the task well and I am sure he will take a lot of confidence from that win to be able to step up in grade again."
Bred by managing part owner Kevin Wacey, Terindah is a son of Fastnet Rock’s William Reid Stakes winner Foxwedge and the Gr.2 winning Rory’s Jester mare Toast Of The Coast.
Also dam of the stable’s metropolitan winner Down The Hatch, Toast Of The Coast – who was served last spring by Dissident – has a yearling filly by Fighting Sun.
