Reporter Iwin reached out to owner Stald Gullis about his big 132 to 1 long shot winner:
Iwin: Did you think your horse could win this race and why?
Stald Gullis: No i didn’t think he could win. When i saw the startlist i remember there is really good horses in here. but with the handicap he had i hope for a top 4.
Iwin: When you saw the odds of 132+ did you think the bettors missed something?
Stald Gullis: No the starlist was very tough. But i know Thin Lizzy have some followers in here and i hope some of them made a little bet. But i can understand if player’s didn’t bet on him
Iwin: With this being your first Grade I win this year, how does this make you feel?
Stald Gullis: Well i have only been in this game for 1½-2years and i had to learn that this is a tough competition butt when i u see and is a part of a win like this you just want to work more and harder to get one more.
Iwin: Where do you see Tin Lizzie next race?
Stald GullisWell i want to take part of the handicap advantage so i think AP St Leger Stakes – Grade III 8/15/2015 is the right for him.
Iwin: Anything else you like to add.
Stald Gullis: It’s a fun history the last 2 month for this horse. after his win in April I got a part inquires whether I would sell him or if I thought he could run longer races. That made me try him in some longer races and he did pretty well. So when i saw i could get a really good handicap i thought why not.
Until next time this is Iwin signing off!
