South Australian filly Go Indy Go has swept down the centre of the track to win the Group One Champagne Stakes at Randwick.
The widest runner on the home turn under star young jockey Chad Schofield, Go Indy Go, backed from $8 to $7, came from last to beat Zululand ($17) and Kumaon ($16).
Her victory completed a clean sweep for fillies of Sydney’s autumn two-year-old triple crown after Mossfun won the Golden Slipper and Peggy Jean took out the Sires’ Produce Stakes.
Go Indy Go is trained in Adelaide by Leon McDonald and she is closely related to his Caulfield Cup winner Southern Speed.
Asked how Go Indy Go compared to some of the stars to come out of his Morphettville stable, McDonald said: “Right at the top. I have always thought that, but I didn’t like to say it before today.”
Go Indy Go scored by a length with a short head separating Zululand and Kumaon.
