Lockmar caused an upset to win Race 8 at Rosehill

The final race on Apollo Stakes Day has been won today by Frank Gardner’s Lockmar.

The six-year-old gelding won the Vaby’s Mediterranean Grill Handicap which ran as Race 8 at Rosehill Gardens.

Lockmar burst from the middle of the pack down the home straight and won well against the classy field.

The favourite for the race at Luxbet, King Lionheart, put in a good run and emerged from an awkward position to claim second.

Huckleberry Friend, trained by Grahame Begg, came home strongly to finish third.

Lockmar won Race 8 at Rosehill today paying odds of $60.20 at Luxbet.

The Marwina gelding has won only seven of his 50 career starts to date and put in a surprising win today after finishing 11th last start at Randwick on February 12.
