Al Capone & Jon Templeton win Ron Wall Memorial Derby Challenge, Cloncurry

Congratulations to Jon Templeton & Al Capone winners of the inaugural Ron Wall Memorial Derby Challenge, with a 10.5 point margin.

Al Capone was bred by Donell Park Stud, as was Jon’s other mount, 5th placegetter Donell Park Diva.

Congratulations to owners Drew & Sally Stevenson who purchased Al Capone from Debbie Gesler last October and have watched him go from strength to strength at every outing. This is the icing on the cake and is so heartening following a rough couple of somewhat tragic years with their horses.

Sally says it is a massive honour to win Ron’s Memorial Trophy and to have their horse be the first name to appear, particularly as he used to help her a lot at Challenges throughout the years.

Congratulations to all all connections and to all placegetters.
