Hawkesbury based trainer Daniel Robinson recorded his first metropolitan win last week, with Karmazone snatching the victory at Warwick Farm.
Robinson trains a small team at Hawkesbury, as a side to his DPR Breaking business, and owns Karmazone, with his wife Ally.
Ridden by apprentice Zac Lloyd, the seven-year-old gelding came from behind to defeat outsider Roman and favourite Hollywood North in the Benchmark 78 Handicap (1600m).
It was a special win for Robinson, not only marking his first metropolitan win, but also doing it with Karmazone, who he purchased in 2017, with the initial intention to sell him later that year.
However the couple, like the horse, both took a shine to him, and they decided to hang onto him.
