Morphettville Races - Pictorial Report

9 June 2012

Today saw the first two races for 2yo fillies and 2yos and the first went to the Adelaide Magic Millions graduate in Splash of Moet (Dash for Cash - Storm Tossed) who raced away to win strongly from the Victorian Galvez wth topweight Princess Royale third.  Race 2 went to the Victorian visitor Grand Emperor by Written Tycoon who was in front well into the straight but was soon joined by Akahadoo but the former fought back strongly to win with Prince Stratum further back in third. 

The Open Hcp followed with Bundle o'Gold and Periduki up in the leading group with Counter Sign in behind with Morgan Dollar well placed to challenge around the turn and Disquiet further back.  In the straight Periduki fought off Bundle O'Gold with Counter Sign getting through late but it was Disquiet with all the momentum storming down the outside to win from the gallant Periduki with Lilgiggleo running on well for third.  Morgan Dollar was found to have bled and has now been retired with a career spanning 39 starts over 5 years for 4 wins including the Dermody Stakes and 11 placings with most of his racing taking place in Victoria against the best sprinters of recent times including Hay List, Apache Cat and champion Black Caviar.

The fourth race was taken out by the promising stayer Sky Raider who has now won 7 from 17 starts plus 5 second placings from Our Freed Man who tried hard to hold on with Ballypatrick third.

The remaining races went to Avoid Lightning who took her record to 3 from 4, Kellerman, Mr Lowndes and Hot Diamond with Paul Gatt riding a treble for the day.
