Sponsor claims win as local
AFTER the presentation of the Frasers Livestock Transport Stallion Draft trophy and rug, Jim Daley felt very much a local.
A former West Australian, Daley and his wife Kim have been in Queensland for six years, the past year at Goomburra.
Daley won the stallion draft on Westons Yakka with 181 points, six ahead of Dean Hann, on Heatwave, and seven up on Barry Johnson riding Soda Thompson.
After the presentations by the Fraser family, Daley was told by Les Fraser he was close enough that Warwick would claim him.
“I think it was a thrill for the Frasers to have a local winner,” Daley said.
He was delighted to record the biggest win of his riding career.
“A lot of people just come to Warwick to look at the stallion campdraft,” Daley said.
“We are standing the 14-year-old stallion at Goomburra so the win is definitely good exposure.”
Yesterday, Daley was equal seventh on Westons Yakka in the Supafloats Canning Downs Campdraft.
