Moree trainer Peter Sinclair has paid tribute to his "nice little horse" Oh Why after the four-year-old, New Zealand-bred gelding won the $8000 Mallawa Picnic Cup (1400m).
The eight-lengths win was Oh Why's fifth triumph in his past seven starts, including victory in the Warialda Cup in April.
On Saturday, he blew away his Mallawa Cup rivals and paid $1.80 for the win.
The Sinclair-trained Track Flash (Ashley Boyd) - who won the Mallawa Cup last year and last month won a third Boolooroo Cup - was second, with Beau In Chains (Nick Perrett) in third place - more than nine lengths behind the winner.
Sinclair described Oh Why as a "trier" who had been in work since Danny Bourke bought the horse at a sale in October.
"He's a good doer in the stable and he's an easy horse to train and goes to the races and tries his hardest every time," Sinclair said.
Oh Why has now won six of his 19 starts for almost $63,000 in prize money.
Sinclair is considering entering Oh Why in Saturday's $10,000 Walgett Cup (1400m) - provided he is not "weighted out" of it, which he suspects will happen.
Oh Why was the Mallawa Cup's top weight (69 kilograms), in a seven-horse field, but was ridden by three-kilogram-claiming apprentice Steven Kehoe.
