BALLARAT trainer Darren Weir continued his rich vein of form, landing Sunday’s $25,000 Casterton Cup with Bec Said No Credit.
The gutsy four-year-old, who started a $2.70 favourite, responded brilliantly to some heavy riding by Dean Yendall to outlast a fast-finishing Texan Warney ($8.50).
The Warrnambool-trained Gold Medals ($15) was third.
It capped a magnificent weekend for Weir, who trained five winners on Saturday, to take him past 200 winners in a season for the first time in his training career.
Weir trained a treble at Donald, with single wins coming at Flemington and Morphettville.
A winner of six of his 28 starts, Bec Said No Credit entered the race in solid form after a pair of third placings at Caulfield in the mare’s last three starts.
