Shoot Out Wins Royal Sovereign Stakes

On Saturday Randwick hosted an elite day of racing with the John Wallace-trained Shoot Out claiming an upset win in the feature race of the day, the Group 2 Royal Sovereign Stakes (1200m).

Shoot Out ($8.50) beat home the David Payne-trained More Than Great ($5) with roughie Viking Legend ($21) in third after a dramatically close finish that originally saw More Than Great announced as the winner.

After consulting the photo results, Shoot Out was awarded first place by a mere nose.

It was a mixed result for Gai Waterhouse, trainer of the odds-on favourite, as Manhattan Rain ($1.70) had a shocking run on the day finishing a well-back fifth after rearing up with the opening of the gates. Waterhouse did however also prepare third placegetter Viking Legend and took out the Group 2 Light Fingers Stakes with top filly More Joyous.

Shoot Out, a three-year-old High Chaparral gelding, has the Group 1 AJC Australian Derby in his sights as the next major target and will take to races including the Randwick Guineas in the meantime.

It was a bumper day of racing with a number of other black type features filling the race card including the Group 2 Breeders Classic where Alverta claimed victory and the Group 3 Southern Cross Stakes that was taken out by Kenny?s World.
