Saturday Wrap-Up 16.05.2015

Saturday May16 saw a marathon nine event meeting at the Gold Coast and some longer priced winners saluted the judge which resulted from competitive racing. The larger fields attracted a good crowd at the Gold Coast and some visitors were in attendance from Brisbane. The Sunshine Coast meeting produced Winx winning most impressively and she will now line up as a pronounced favourite in the upcoming staying event for fillies the Queensland Oaks. In South Australia the Darley Goodwood produced well fancied runners Hucklebuck, Lucky Hussler, Black Heart Bart and Under The Louvre, however Flamberge provided an upset although not completely unexpected. Vlad Duric gave the gelding a great ride from a wide barrier. Lord Of The Sky also ran well. At Scone Artlee was well supported and won accordingly.The Snowden trained Flippant was most impressive in race one.


The Queensland Winter Carnival rolls on and the supporting Gold Coast meeting this coming Saturday is the Westfield Community Raceday followed by the Coca - Cola Raceday at the Gold Coast on May 30. The major meetings to be held at the Gold Coast in June are the TattsTiara and Tradies Day meetings on June 20 and June 27 respectively. June 6 and 13 are betting only meetings and will be well patronised given the important meetings in Brisbane.
