McEvoy chasing Stradbroke success

Tony McEvoy has issued a positive bulletin on Despatch (Written Tycoon) and Dollar For Dollar
(High Chaparral) as he chases a seventh Group 1 win of the season in the Stradbroke Handicap
at Eagle Farm today. “They worked together on the Eagle Farm course proper on Tuesday and
I was happy with them,” McEvoy said. “They wouldn’t be running if I wasn’t.” RegardingDespatch, McEvoy added:

“I was going to trial him at the Gold Coast last week but I was so happy with him I didn’t send him around. He has drawn barrier one which is perfect for his
racing style and it is a perfect race for him. I am really excited because it gives him a real chance
to run a strong 1400 metres.” Jamie Kah will ride Dollar For Dollar, who will have to overcome
barrier 19. “I am told barriers aren’t everything on this new track so Jamie can show why,”
McEvoy continued.
