Lovely Lola drive ensures ‘Lucky Creed’ Listed win

By Duane Ranger.

It couldn’t have happened to a nicer person, or more deserving and committed horsewoman. Lola Weidemann, who seems to travel the earth to get to races throughout Queensland and NSW, has won the Open Pace at Albion Park – the Listed $25,770 Lucky Creed Pace (6.14pm).

Brisbane’s 2019 Ekka Show Queen, drove a peach of a race to get Kid Montana (13) up from the widest second-row draw to win.

She was 10th of 11 at the bell, but then followed race favourite, Our Uncle Sam (fourth) in the three-wide train.
Weidemann then loomed up with the brown son of Rock N Roll Heaven, and then out-sprinted them to beat Colt Thirty One (8) and Clintal Do (6) by 1.1 and 1.2m respectively.

The 5-year-old gelding paced the 2680m mobile in 3:14 (mile rate 1:56.6) and his sectionals were 29.7, 29.6, 27.4, and 28.8. It was Kid Montana’s 26th win in 70 starts and he’s now made more than $140,000 in stakes. Nine of those wins have come this season.

Kid Montana, who was the $11.20 fourth favourite, was bred by James Moore, and is owned by C L Shepherdson, N B Dicks, C B Dicks, G R Shepherdson, P J Shepherdson, and N S Drysdale.

“We travel a lot of kilometres to get to and from the races, and the Marburg track is closest to home,” said a delighted Weidemann, who is based at Clifton – 101km from Marburg.
