Saturday Wrap-Up 04.07.2015

The Red Boot for Ronald McDonald House,SEQ race day was slightly down on previous meetings which is typical for this time of the year however a large attendance for Ronald Mcdonald nearly filled the new convention centre building.

Race(1) Innocent, the favourite, was slowly away and ran on well however it was too late to catch Sassy Tycoon which began brilliantly from the 900M start. There was money for the winner and also Hair of the Dog was well supported in this Class 4 event.

Race (2) The Morrisey trained Delvaux was well backed and there was strong support for Mia Madalena which began well and duely saluted the judge. So we had a two years old filly trouncing older horses in a strong performance.

Race (3) In the Class 2 1400M Handicap the bookmakers were hammered as Spanish Saga was heavily supported mostly to the exclusion of other runners and after $2.50 was offered early in betting $1.70 was scarcely available at post time.

Race (4) The Westpac 2YO over 1100M was quite a good betting affair as Mishani Honcho (in from $5.50) from the Les Ross stable was well supported and French Concession (in from $17.00) was also popular with her connections. Positive Charge held her place at the top of the market and eventually saluted the judge when Mishani Honcho got too far back. 

Race (5) I Like Candy was another well supported winner on the day and after having a perfect run in transit this 3YO filly won well. The top price of $9.00 was given early in betting and $5.00 was taken late in betting.

Race (6) The 2200M Class 2 saw most money for Iniquity and the eventual winner Tampere drifted in betting however it was a nice win in the end. Whitely gave the favourite Iniquity every chance.

Race (7) There was strong betting in this competitive affair and the southern visitor Nothing Like Luca drifted in the market however he was most impressive on the line.Money came for Cornrow, Hydrazine,and Signpost, however there was also specking for others.

Race (8) The main support came for Alpintoro, Lost thief, Chophouse Tears, Pompeii Flyer and Te Rux. The latter duely saluted down the outside and after $8.00 was given early, $6.50 was unavailable at the jump.
