On Monday afternoon classy Adelaide-based galloper Shout Out Loud won the $160,000 Carlton Mid Darwin Cup (2000m) at the Fannie Bay Turf Club in front of 19,000 spectators.
Trained by Kerry Petrick, five-year-old Shout Out Loud ($9) came from behind and in a brilliant late burst was able to defeat the odds-on favourite Hawks Bay ($4) by a short-head with 2008 Darwin Cup winner Club Liquid ($7) in third.
In a dramatic finish, Shout Out Loud’s jockey Robbie Fradd was left winded and embarrassed when he fell off the winning horse after punching the air in celebration.
It was an important win for Shout Out Loud who had previously been beaten by Hawks Bay in both the Darwin Guineas and NT Derby last year.
Ne Coupez Pas gelding Shout Out Loud has now won six of their 23 career starts for $243,530 in prizemoney.
In great form, Shout Out Loud’s Darwin Cup victory came on the back of his gallant third in the tradition lead up race, the Metric Mile (1600m).
