Jul 25, 2013

Courtesy of - 25/07/13 - MATURE aged apprentice Tyson Buck secured his first winner back in Tasmania at Devonport yesterday since 2006.

Spending the past three years riding in the Victorian picnic circuit, Buck (23) spent three months on loan to Graeme Mcculloch during the 2005/2006 season where he managed a win at Hobart aboard outsider Folding Notes at $31.

Encosta de Legend became Bucks second Tasmanian winner in a seven year period when saluting in the Class 2 Handicap over 1150m for Masters David & Scott Brunton.

Settling well, the four-year-old mare made easy work of the field scoring by over 4 lengths.
