Recap by phillip woo

Flying Colours was rated nicely in midfield and just off the rails, shouldered his way into the clear five deep at the 250m and stretched out well to get up just ahead of El Zonda for the win. El Zonda travelled behind midfield and two deep, rounded the final bend six wide and finished off nicely over his preferred 1,000m trip at this course to come up just short. Horse Galore travelled one-out, one-back, cornered in four deep, swept to the lead 50m out and was swamped late to keep up his consistent credentials. Oriental Prosper went toe-to-toe with the late-fancied Romantic City for the front through good fractions, turned for home three deep, hit the front 200m out and was swamped inside the final 50m. He's got some natural ability as a sprinter and will come on further for this run. Paganini's Soul was hitting the line with purpose over the final 200m. Happy Yeah Yeah made some ground along the inside without threatening. Well-punted late, Romantic City was running on empty at the 100m. Final Answer settled in the box-seat, straightened three deep and whacked on one-paced with every chance. Touch Go made his run behind midfield and on the rails, switched into the clear five wide at the 250m, steadied at the 200m and kept on evenly over the final 150m. Groovy had to travel three wide and behind midfield, hit the final bend with one wider out and never did click with the step up in grade

Racing Incident Report

Race Eight: (388) - KENNEDY HANDICAP - Class 1 - 1000 Meters GROOVY was slow to begin.

As the start was effected, HAPPY YEAH YEAH, which was leaning on the outside of its stall, began awkwardly and lost ground.

Making the turn after the 600 Metres, VITAL FLYER got its head on the side and hung out.

VITAL FLYER then continued to hang out for the remainder of the event.

Before being allowed to race again, VITAL FLYER will be required to perform satisfactorily in an official barrier trial around a bend.

PAGANINIS SOUL had difficulty obtaining clear running approaching the 200 Metres.

At the 200 Metres, TOUCH GO was steadied away from the heels of AT MOMENT IN TIME when disappointed for running between EL ZONDA and AT MOMENT IN TIME which, after initially being taken out by FLYING COLOURS, then shifted out further of its own accord.

A short distance after this, AT MOMENT IN TIME was momentarily crowded for room between FLYING COLOURS and EL ZONDA which shifted in.

A veterinary inspection of VITAL FLYER and GROOVY after the race did not show any significant findings.

ROMANTIC CITY, FLYING COLOURS and EL ZONDA were sent for sampling.
