Recap by phillip woo

Short-priced favourite Happy Index dictated the running, cornered a half-length on top and gamely fended off the challenge of Palepale for a third win from four starts. He's only a three year old and has room for further improvement. Palepale settled third and one off the fence, straightened three deep, got within a half-length at the 150m and just held the late surge of Costa Del Sol for second prize. Costa Del Sol was taken back to last from a wide gate, cornered in with one wider out and was doing his best work late down the far outside to make it interesting for second. He's really found a niche on the dirt in his past two starts and remains one to follow on this surface. Dream Builder settled midfield and two deep, rallied six wide upon straightening and wore down Rumba King to just snare fourth. Rumba King settled fifth and one off, rallied five wide upon straightening and kept on one-paced. Best-backed late, Quantum Power made his run fourth from the rear and one off the fence, turned the final bend three deep and made some ground without menacing.

Racing Incident Report

Race Seven: (495) - THE MANAWATU RACING CLUB CHALLENGE TROPHY (HANDICAP) - Class 3 - 1200 Meters From a wide barrier, COSTA DEL SOL was taken across behind runners shortly after the start.

After the 600 Metres, GENE POWER got its head on the side and hung out towards the heels of QUANTUM POWER.

Near the 100 Metres, FATBOY SUGAR shifted out and bumped GENE POWER.

Throughout the race, SHAHJEE and ELUSIVE PRINCE travelled wide and without cover.

A veterinary inspection of ELUSIVE PRINCE after the race did not show any significant findings.

HAPPY INDEX and PALEPALE were sent for sampling.
