Sycamore – Grade III
1 1/2 Mile Turf Stake Purse $150.000 Open 3 Year Olds And Up.
1st Its True YME Stable Beschizza A
Its taken 15 races to find the secret to this one and now finally his trainer has found a race distance that allows him to run up to his work times. The furthest he had gone before this was 9 furlongs and he had won two and placed once in three efforts over that trip so the clues were there. Now he has found his niche he should go on in these extreme trip races.
2nd Taniwha Aml Racing Gaffalione T
Either by race engine or a tactical decision this one decided to make the running today and looked to be going well until he was inevitably collared late. At the age of five he still retains ability but its getting hard to catch him on the right day these days.
3rd Laffin Jamie High Voltage Rosario J
The first three year old home stalked the lead but once again couldnt find the turn of foot to put them away.
4th The Monkii Man The Sidley Stud Lanerie C J
Stayed on well into fourth beaten just a length, he is another who runs this trip well but often find one or two too good at this level.
