The sun kept undercover but the mediocre weather couldn’t dampen the spirits of the Victorian racegoers at Caulfield.
The early races did their best to take the wind out of punters’ sails, but things started to look better as the afternoon progressed.
Admire Rakti and (f) Lucia Valentina attracted much of the late money, after the favourite had drifted earlier in the day.
Brambles looked strong in the early going, but left the rail to allow Rising Romance to come through before the Japanese horse Admire Rakti burst from the pack to take the win.
It was a classy ride from Zac Purton, who waited until just the right moment before applying some encouragement.
It was also a great result for the punters with the favourite and two well-backed runners placing.
Clever punters who bagged Admire Rakti during Sportsbet’s Caulfield Countdown will be cock-a-hoop tonight, after they notched the five-year-old at $19.
