Tiger By The Tale is living proof that if first you don’t succeed, try again – even if it takes two years.
The six-year-old gelding has competed in 16 Highway Handicaps – or more than half of his 30 starts since the series was introduced in October, 2015.
But on Saturday at Rosehill, Tiger By The Tale finally claimed a win for trainer Danny Williams as a $21 chance with veteran jockey Glyn Schofield aboard for the first time.
“He’s had more starts than any of the horses in the Highways to date so it’s been a long time coming,” Williams said.
“When you go back through his form, he’s probably unlucky not to have won one or two of these Highways.”
