Trainer Clinton McDonald believes that Second Effort has what it takes to win the 2013 Memsie Stakes.

“He just keeps coming up year after year,” McDonald told AAP.

“Same time, same horse and we’re hoping it’ll be the same result next time out.”

“The softer tracks around this time certainly help, but he seems to be getting better every year.

“It’s the same set of races I won with Regal Roller a few years back.

“This horse isn’t up to Regal Roller’s class, but he’s honest and this is his time of year.”

Second Effort has won 11 of his 30 race starts and has earned more than $657,000 in prize money during his horse racing career. is your one stop shop for betting this spring racing carnival.
