He has got to have everything go his way, says Lloyd
Jeff Lloyd claimed backmarker Happy Cha Cha's Class Four win to open the day could be put down to a simple case of mathematics. 'It was a smaller field meant he only had to get around 10 instead of 13,' Lloyd joked after piloting the Me Tsui Yu-sak-trained five-year-old to a last-to-first victory, the gelding's fourth win in 30 starts. 'It was the right race for him because he has got to have everything go his way,' Lloyd said. 'He has to be outside of horses and he needs the pace to be consistent. He got the right speed today and was able to run into it the race.' Euphemism looked the winner late, but Happy Cha Cha was able to come with the last run and score by a head, returning $72.
