Barrie & Midge Griffiths are among the country's most astute breeders: and they're not too bad when it comes to selecting winners either!
Barrie sighted a Bel Esprit filly from the Zeditave mare Zapple at the 2007 Melbourne Autumn Yearling Sale - on consignment from breeder Greta West Stud - and snapped her up for a bargain $22,000.
Well, it certainly appears to be a bargain when the filly - now named Strudel and racing out of the Russell Bell stable - won her second race from six outings on 13 October by taking out the Moama Bowling Club F&M 0 - 68 Handicap over 1100m at Echuca.
Cleverly named, Strudel is a full sister to winner Apple Esprit, from a winning daughter of 5-time stakes winner Apple Danish.
