The Warrnambool straight seemed like it stretched for miles for the connections of Wednesday’s Listed Wangoom Handicap winner Kneeling.

The Peter Moody-trained mare shared the speed for most of the race before darting three lengths clear at the 250m but there were no shortage of chasing horses.

Linda Meech rode Kneeling desperately but Anlon and Magnus Reign were steadily gaining but they turned out to be the least of the rider’s worries.

Topweight Blackie charged home from last, darting between runners in the final 100m to just miss out.

Moody’s representative Zach I’Anson believed the Darren Weir-trained Blackie ($16) had beaten Kneeling ($9).

“I though she got rolled, it’s a long straight here,” I’Anson said.

“It’s good to see her get another nice race under her belt.”

I’Anson said Moody intended to send the five-year-old to campaign during the Brisbane winter carnival.

Kneeling was the third consecutive Wangoom Handicap winner to come from a Caulfield stable after the Clinton McDonald-trained Second Effort won the previous two editions of the race.

The Wangoom result also left trainer Darren Weir with one chance left to win a new car.

The Warrnambool Racing Club offers the prize to any trainer that can win four races, including one of the feature events over the three days.

Gotta Take Care’s Galleywood Hurdle win was Weir’s fourth for the carnival but the race’s seven starters fell short of the 10 needed in each leg.

Blackie was one of three Weir-trained runners in the Wangoom Handicap but the rules dictated Weir could only nominate two horses for eligibility to be counted in the contest.

Weir must win Thursday’s Listed Warrnambool Cup with either of the favoured Akzar or Shiny Buttons to claim the prize.
