ONE of the old stable favourites Deitch was a popular winner on his home track.

Ridden by Luke Tarrant, Deitch ($6.50) led all the way to win a Benchmark 75 (1200m) on Sunday, November 5.

The challenges came in the straight but he kept sticking his neck out to win by length.

It was seven-year-old’s fifth win from 43 career starts.

But he’s also placed on 17 other occasions.

“Deitch is certainly one of our stable favourites,’’ said trainer Stuart Kendrick.

“He’s just one of those tough, consistent geldings which always puts in and often picks up a prizemoney cheque when he goes around.

“You’d love to have a heap of them in your stable. It was great to see him get another win on the board.”
