Twenty-year-old trainer William Kropp has only two gallopers in work, but the son of Toowoomba horseman Matt Kropp is a city-winning conditioner after I Promise You’s BRC Carnival Plus Membership Fillies and Mares Class 1 Handicap victory.
William Kropp, who represented Queensland in showjumping during his high school days as an elite junior equestrian, posted his first win as a trainer three months ago when I Promise You made good use of her home-track advantage to break through in a Dalby maiden, bolting in by four and a quarter lengths. And I Promise You, which joined Kropp’s yard from that of Brett Cavanough following her two unplaced runs in New South Wales, supplied the young trainer with his first metropolitan victory in Eagle Farm’s seventh race.
I Promise You, which apprentice rider Madeleine Wishart partnered for the first time, was popular with punters, jumping at a starting price of 4-1, challenging for BRC Carnival Plus Membership Fillies and Mares Class 1 Handicap favouritism after trading at 7-1 on the opening show.
