The Corstens family had a day out on Ballarat Cup Day following victories by Titan Blinders and Kaplumpich.
Titan Blinders scored his fourth career win in the Benchmark 70 race over 1100 metres for father-and-son training partners Leon and Troy Corstens before Leon’s son Kevin also appeared in the winner’s stall following the victory of Kaplumpich in the McKellar Mile.
Kevin Corstens said he can’t remember training a winner on the same day as his brother and father.
“it’s a great day for the family and what a day to do it,” he said.
“Every time he comes out, he tries and he’s just so tough,” he added of Kaplumpich.
Another link to the two winners was Mark Zahra, who rode both and predicted more wins for Titan Blinkers and Kaplumpich.
“When I needed for him to find a couple of lengths he did, so that’s a good sign going forward as he’s really going well,” Zahra said of Kaplumpich.
Both Titan Blinders and Kaplumpich started at $8.50.
