Race Day: Rosehill Gardens on Saturday, 09 December 2017
The brave mare TEST THE WORLD (photo) took another step towards black-type company today, winning a very competitive 1,100 sprint from the classy BON AMIS and powerful TO EXCESS. Tim Clark used the inside barrier to good effect, positioning the daughter of Testa Rossa in the perfect spot before fighting hard right to the line despite copping a check in the straight.
Her time of 1:02.94 suggests a Listed level win isn't too far away.
A sunny afternoon of racing started with another impressive win by the two-year-old filly GONGS, who did the job with style after settling outside the leader. The luck didn't continue long for favourite-backers though, HELIOSPHERE stuck three-wide in Race 2 before getting edged out by SPARKY LAD in a dash home, a horse he had beaten easily the start before.
Later in the day INVINZABEEL once again kicked off the quaddie at odds like he did two weeks ago, winning Race 6 at $14, the quaddie ending with KING DARCI's breakthrough win after they gifted him in the lead in a very weak race.
Check back Monday 5pm for a full review.
