Grey dynamo Tori’s Dee defied a hefty weight to post his second win in a row with a tough performance at Seymour.

Two weeks after shouldering 60kg to victory at Werribee, the pony-sized gelding made light work of an extra two kilos on his back dashing home to beat Thinking Of Gerty in Friday’s Ray White BM64 Hcp (1000m).

Tori’s Dee has become a money-making machine for the Emsley Lodge stable staff who race the gelding under a lease agreement with owner Robin Bowles.

He has now won six races, stepping up to win three races this year including a victory at Bendigo on March 21.

“He has never raced better,” trainer Jamie Edwards said.

“We came here thinking he had the job ahead of him rising two kilos and meeting horses much worse at the weights than at Werribee where he only just won in a photo finish.

“He needed everything to go right for him and Jarrod Fry gave him a terrific ride.”

Tori’s Dee ($4.60) normally leads or at least shares the lead but with a hot speed Jarrod found the best ground in the middle of the track behind the leaders Thinking of Gerty ($7) and Babaloa ($12).

“We were probably lucky those two horses did go so quick,” Jarrod said.

“He was in for the fight and dug in up the straight. He’s so tough.”

Significantly, Darby “Big Jobs” Edwards was on hand to look after Tori’s Dee who is the second winner he has strapped after El Sordo won at Werribee on May 17.
