There was some great racing right across Australia on Saturday, and while there was no clear highlight, there was still some very good and competitive racing. Who caught our attention on the track? Find out down below:
Race Three Number 5 Double Happy (3rd):
Chris Waller trained three year old who was very good in defeat. Wide no cover all the way yet still loomed to win, but just felt the pinch late. He is a coming winner for sure if he gets better luck.
Race Seven Number 3 Rockalong (1st):
Paul Perry has another talented import on his hands here. He really had no right to win the race because they just crawled in front but Thomas Huet peeled him to the extreme outside and despite taking time to wind up, he savaged the line late and was very impressive. Could well develop into a Stakes class horse.
Race Four Number 7 De Little Engine (4th):
Leader just dominated the race, but this horse was very good from the back. Got warm very late and was excellent through the line. He did something similar third up last time in, then went on to win a string of races. He’ll be winning races very soon.
Race Five Number 3 I’m Hector (10th):
Hard to watch if you backed him. Just never got a clear crack at them. He’ll be a nice horse next prep. Not sure what level he can get to, but he’s talented.
Race Six Number 6 Trade Commissioner (6th):
Given every chance by Glyn Schofield, but when presented, he did nothing. I thought the move back to the Rosehill stable would sharpen him…but no, still disappointing.
Race Eight Number 4 Champagne Cath (10th):
Talented mare, but she was very disappointing here after receiving every chance. Breeding barn might well be calling.
