Wakefield's luck changes as Grayson wins

Trainer Brian Wakefield was back on his feet after three months recovering from a broken leg to saddle up impressive Eagle Farm winner Grayson Square on Wednesday.

Wakefield has had a terrible time after he was badly injured while on a five day motorcycle safari in the Victorian highlands in October.

"It was God's own country and I was really enjoying it when I lost a bit of concentration and over went the bike," he said.

"If I went to the left I would have gone over a cliff and if I went right I would have lost the bike, so I went right," Wakefield said.

He ended up with a spiral fracture of his tibia on his right leg which has left him with a limp.

"Lucky, there were two doctors on the trip. But my ambulance was then diverted to another rider who had a broken pelvis so I had to lie around while they got him," Wakefield said.

While he was recovering most of his older horses left the stable with four-year-old Grayson Square his only horse which is not a two-year-old.

"It is a tough game and we will just have to put our team back together again," he said.

Grayson Square ($3.40) gave Wakefield his first city winner since Joint Chiefs scored at Doomben in March.

He beat Heartfelt Quest ($5) by a length with a short neck to Faith No More ($31) in third place in the Grinders Coffee Hcp (1400m).

Grayson Square will now be aimed at Saturday class races.

Earlier, trainer Len Treloar declared Who Will ($2.30) could go through to open company after he won the Sequalo Hcp (1000m).

"I think he has real potential and he showed a lot of heart to win today," Treloar said.

Meanwhile, trainer Matt Dunn breathed a sigh of relief when Maracoola ($3.10) won the Yellow Glen Hcp (1200m).

"She should have won a maiden well before today. When I want to know how good one is going I let them gallop with Maracoola.

"She is one of the best workers in the stable.

"Hopefully, she will win a couple on end now. She should have beaten Missy Longstocking in a race as a two year so that gives you an idea of how good she is," Dunn said.
