Morphettville Races - Pictorial Report

16 February 2013

In the steaming hot weather the first race of the day was the 2yo event where Typhoon (by Hard Spun) in having her second start was too good defeating Burnro with Tikitour third.  In the second race Barigan Boy was on the 7day back up and easily defated Roccin Jo with Mahmentum third making it four wins from his last 6 starts.  In the third the Victorian General Offer fought back strongly when challenged to narrowly defeat Karacatis with Dubawi Gold third.  By General Nediym the winner takes his record to 14 starts for 4 wins and 4 placings.

In a rough run to the line Debeersonus crossed the line just ahead of Richie's Vibe with Exalted Appeal third but the first two placings were reversed after a protest was upheld giving the race to Richie's Vibe by Danerich who takes his record to two wins from three starts.  In another close finish in the next race the lightly raced Tycoon Heights was too good winning his 3rd race from 5 starts in defeating Red Eclipse with Raise a Heart third.

The feature race of the day was next with topweight Pelicano storming home to win the Listed Birthday Cup from the gallant Generous Beau with Waratone third.  Pelicano has now won 7 races from 14 starts and may head interstate for further stakes races.  In the last race Oui Si Attitude returned to her  best form winning from  St Gabriel with Tommy Two third.  Last start Oui Si Attitude had run fourth after being scratched the previous week when she played up badly in the mounting yard which was completely out of character for the mare and now takes her record to 30 starts for 7 wins and 4 placings.
