We all like an underdog, dont we? That position always seems to be the case whenever a horse steps on the big race stage trained by Peter Gelagotis.This Saturday may just see his unfashionable training location deliver a second victory at Group 1 level, with Malaguerra in the Winterbottom Stakes over 1200 metres at Ascot in Perth.What is cool about Gelagotis and his family-centric training team is, they are winners. Their touch isnt necessarily golden, but they are high achievers despite the odds often being against them. There is even a chicken shop that plays a part in this story too and a lesson in customer service.Weve been there. Weve experienced the top echelon of competition, Peter Gelogotis told ESPN from Perth.I think we are every bit of being able to handle these situations and equally as competent in being able to uphold our CV when it comes to these races, whether the horse has come to us from a Hall of Fame stable or whether weve trained them from the beginning ourselves, he added in reference to the boutique stable that he heads of less than 20 chargers.I dont think we punch above our weight. I reckon we fly under the radar. Theres a lot of good trainers out there and I think we fall into that category. We dont get these opportunities as regularly as the big guys, but when we do were there.Peter is closely supported by his brother Manny and they are sometimes relatively outspoken in their views on racing matters, which has developed for them somewhat of a cult following for it. Theyve developed similar cult heroes in their stable like Group 1 winner Mourinho and later acquisitions such as The Cleaner and Malaguerra, they have thrust themselves into the spotlight with their horses performances.Newborough is a proud little town near Moe, situated two hours east of Melbourne and the area is home to around 16,000 people.Even Manny described it as being as unfashionable. That, though, has never stopped them.Were not a small stable on purpose. We started with six boxes at our stable and have expanded to a capacity of 20 over time with evolution, he said. Our stable isnt the Taj Mahal but the horses all have their space, they can have a pick of grass whenever they like. It is that next-to-nature experience that makes a real difference to them.The Gelagotis made racing headlines in 2016 and were painted as poachers of other talented gallopers from other trainers. The Cleaner became a Tasmanian hero for his guaranteed frontrunning while under the care of the horse racing battler Mick Burles.Similarly, after winning the Group 1 BTC Cup (1200m) in Brisbane in June, Malaguerra was sensationally transferred from Hall of Fame trainer Lee Freedman to the Moe-based team. Seemingly, it is a customer-first, friendly approach taken by the Gelagotis that saw the owners of those horses gravitate towards them.We had several days at the races where it was Mourinho vs. The Cleaner. We got to know the ownership of The Cleaner intimately (by just being there). In true racing style, when they won, we congratulated them. The winning margins were always tight and we also liked to acknowledge the good stories, Gelagotis said of what would soon become a talking point in racing of 2016.As he further explained, the ownership of both horses wanted to make a change - each their own reasons - and chose Peter Gelagotis. While The Cleaners career was already in decline, Peter has risen to the challenge of continuing Malaguerras Group 1 winning form.Malaguerra started at $9.50 when winning in the Group 1 Darley Classic (1200m) at $9.50 on the final day of the Melbourne Cup Carnival.Ive (currently) got two good sprinters in Malaguerra and Illustrious Lad, Gelagotis said, with the latter being the winner of the Group 2 Linlithgow Stakes (1200m) at Flemington on Derby Day.You can compare them (in their work). After they both came through their first-up runs hugely.... we were super confident in the ability of both horses to win their races and were rolling into the Winterbottom equally confident.Before the Darley, Ben Melhan (jockey) said to me: just have a good nights sleep, mate, Ill win the race for you.As Melham did just that, the five-year-old gelding lines up this week in an unusual position for a Gelagotis-trained Group 1 galloper as the UBET $3.60 favourite.But where does their attitude to their business and success in racing stem from? The answer: a take-away and restaurant chicken shop.My dad emigrated to Australia from Greece as a 16-year-old. He started to from scratch and the chicken shop has been this familys livelihood, he said. He taught us that the customer is always right. That business is the backbone of our family. We treat our owners that way and provide them with great service and communication.You have to do that. Just like the chicken shop, if treat your customers poorly then they wont come back.With that thinking and a very positive preparation, Malaguerra is all set to deliver yet again. Just like the chicken shop. Brent Grimes Jersey . Defencemen Drew Doughty, Shea Weber and forward Ryan Getzlaf also scored for the Canadians, who started their gold-medal defence 2-0. Goalie Roberto Luongo, getting the call in place of Game 1 starter Carey Price, was solid when needed in making 23 saves for the shutout. Kendell Beckwith Jersey . LOUIS -- The New Orleans Saints looked like a team playing out the string. . "Jeff is a hard worker who was an important special-teams contributor for us last season," said Stamps GM John Hufnagel. Charles Sims Jersey . It was the kind of score that might make everyone else wonder which course he was playing. Except that Graeme McDowell saw the whole thing. Crouched behind the 10th green at Sheshan International, McDowell looked over at the powerful American and said, "Ive probably seen 18 of the best drives Ive seen all year in the last two days.
