Big wins for Nature Strip, Dean Yendall at Flemington

Wimmera connections have celebrated a big day on the last day of the Melbourne Cup Carnival with champion horse Nature Strip winning the $2-million Group 1 Darley Sprint and Horsham Jockey saluting on Reykjavik in the Group 2 Chatham Stakes yesterday.

Nature Strip, part owned by Horsham's Frank Giampaolo, Craig Bennett, Geoff Dumesny, Craig Garland and David McCluskey, will most likely head to Royal Ascot for the 1000m King's Stand and the Diamond Jubilee Cup.

Yendall, one of the country's most consistant riders, was thankful after the race to Perth trainer Lindsey Smith.
