Race Day: Royal Randwick on Saturday, 25 January 2020
Five of the nine favourites on the card saluted today at Royal Randwick, making it a good result for punters before the bookies got one back in the last.
The TAB Highway for country gallopers was split into two and the most popular gallopers won both, MR WONG riding a hot speed and fighting on best before HELLENISM impressed in the yard and on the track, swooping home late to win. Both have big upside into the upcoming Country Championships, HELLENISM a more professional type that will relish the 1,400 metres of the final if he makes it that far.
Later in the day CRADLE MOUNTAIN bounced back to form to win the feature Listed Carrington Stakes and the heavily-backed PANDEMIC sliced through the pack to win first-up over 1,100 metres.
And after getting on the wrong side of the ledger early, bookies fortunes turned when the Melbourne raider I AM VINNIE ran on hard to win the last race over 1,400 metres at the massive odds of $51.
A full review of the day is provided below.
