Accidental Tourist added some sparkle to an otherwise a furustrating evening when turning when winning the last at a rain-swept greyville on Firday night. Ridden ‘cold’ by Keagan de Melo, she was last tuning for home but just when all had given up hope, she turned on the after-burners and rocketed through the field to swallow up the leaders in a matter of strides.
It was a smart performance by any yardstick. Accedential Tourist now appears to be realising the promise that she showed early in her career. Good luck to owners Jimmy Sarkis and Werner Kuhn.
