Peter Gelagotis and apprentice Jack Martin combined to celebrate their first wins in Sydney, an experience slightly tarnished by having to share the spoils.

The Victorian duo were on the brink of winning a benchmark race at Randwick with Moss 'n' Dale but the Peter and Paul Snowden-trained Roaring to Win and Brenton Avdulla lunged on the line to dead-heat.

"It's a bit of a numb feeling but it's deemed a win isn't it?" Moe-based Gelagotis said.

"I'm very grateful, it's my first win in New South Wales."

Martin was also pleased to share the limelight with Avdulla, who leads the Sydney jockey premiership.

"He (Moss 'n' Dale) over-raced a touch more than usual but he was tough to the line and he's honest," Martin said.

Sent to Gelagotis after placings in Te Awamutu and Cambridge trials as a juvenile two years ago, Moss 'N' Dale has been a consistent performer in three campaigns, racking up five wins from eleven starts going into yesterday's race, the sixth win taking his stake earnings past the $A150,000 mark.
