The first race was
for the 2yos and only two of the 7 runners had raced before. One
of these was topweight Tennessee Groom who sprinted clear in the
straight but in the closing stages he was run down by Ziggler who won by
a length from Coup De Beel with a half length to Tennessee Groom
third. Ziggler is by Shinzig from Princess Canny and is trained by
Lloyd Kennewell and ridden by Paul Gatt.

through to win from Streetcar Valour with Brave Journey third.

with 62kg for John Sadler from Victoria with J Mott aboard from Road
Warrior with Isopach third. Linton won the RA Lee Stakes on
Goodwood day last year but his race was right before Black Caviar's race
so all attention was on the mare. He takes his record to 22 starts
for 5 wins and 6 placings and will be aimed at the RA Lee Stakes again.
In the HC Nitschke
Stakes Couldn't Agreemore looked the winner until the final few bounds
where General Peekay changed stride and really showed the effort of a

third win of the day. From the stable of Mick Price in Victoria he
defeated Couldn't Agreemore with Red Fez third. General Peekay by
General Nediym took his record to 11 starts for 4 wins and 1 second.

six starts for 3 wins and 3 placings.
