1st Curious Muse, trained by On The Map Racing
This six year old has bee racking up the wins on the sidelines for a long time now but today he was finally given his chance and he proved that he was a stakes quality sprinter. A little behind early on he got to the lead and held on gamely for a half length win.
2nd Moon Landing, trained by Mb Stables
Dropped back from the wide gate and flew late just failing in the end and finishing second. This was a great effort from a tough draw.
3rd Oh Awesome One, trained by John Henry
Beaten less than one length into third, a good effort.
4th Oh My Senor, trained by Ekli Stables
Closed up nicely from a loose stalk but couldnt finish it off ending up a close fourth.
