Saturday Wrap-Up 25.04.2015

Last Saturday Anzac Day saw the running of the 2015 Weight for Age Hollindale Stakes,the Weight for Age Victory Stakes and the Prime Minister's Cup. The Hollindale Stakes was a keen betting affair with Sir Moments, I'm Imposing, Silent Achiever, Arabian Gold, Hooked and Leebaz attracting most interest. In the end the punters "got it right" when Leebaz and Sir Moments fought out the finish. Silent Achiever pulled up a little distressed however I'm Imposing ran on strongly. Pornichet was unlucky to miss the run however he will now go to the Toowoomba Cup where he should start a strong favourite. The Victory Stakes saw last year's Stradbroke placegetter Srikandi being pertfectly ridden from the inside barrier and after having a nice run on the speed she was too strong at the finish. She started a well supported favourite after shortening in from $4. The PM Cup was a competitive affair and Ninth Legion appeared unlucky being trapped wide with his 60.5 kg impost. The final event on the program saw Traveston Girl easing in the market when the money came for Time for War and the winner Nostradamus. Better Not Blue has a hoof on the till.


Next week (02.05.2015) sees the focus turn to Toowoomba and Hawkesbury and the Gold Coast Turf Club will be conducting a betting only meeting on this occasion.
