Morphettville Races - Pictorial Report

2 June 2012

As winter set in (it was cold despite the sun in the photos) the first race was taken out by Psychic Mick (Shinzig-Super Fund) who has now won three out of three as he made a determined run to grab leader Beyond Infinity just before the line with Nimasael running on on the outside for third. Moving to the longer distance for race two the imported Akzar loomed up and appeared to hit the lead momentarily but Langridge Street fought back strongly on the inside and under strong riding from Darren Gauci pushed his head out to win narrowly with Sea Corral in third.  Langridge Street is by Elvstroem and was reportedly the first city winner for Gauci since his comeback from serious injuries after a fall last winter.

In the third race for 3yos Karacatis (by Hussonet) came away in the straight to win easily from Harmonic with Back on Track in third. Another close finish followed in race 4 where Handsome As was just too strong on the line for Bermondsey with Penzevengi third in the big field.

Later races saw the gutsy mare Just Sybil overcome any Black Caviar after affects to win the Open while My Uncle Vinny put together his second win in a row in race 6.  Ace of Joka also repeated his win at his previous start in taking out race 7 over 1400m while Darren Gauci riding again for M Hibbs made it a double in the last race riding Light Express to victory.
