The winning run of the David Ferraris stable continued when Darpana snatched a well-deserved win in the shadows of the post in the all-weather Class Four sprint. 'He jumped better today and that meant he didn't leave himself with as much to do in the straight,' said jockey Zac Purton, who was confident Darpana had arrived when it mattered. 'The leaders left us behind at the top of the straight but Darpana is a horse you know will keep coming, so I didn't give up.' For a horse who once had looked headed for the disappointing basket, the rising seven-year-old has been a model of consistency in Class Four since he switched to the dirt. 'Just a really good bread and butter horse,' said Ferraris.
