2011 Oakleigh Plate Won By Eagle Falls – Caulfield Race 6 Results

Eagle Falls

Eagle Falls is the 2011 Oakleigh Plate winner

The 2011 Oakleigh Plate has been won by David Hayes’ Eagle Falls on Blue Diamond Stakes Day.

Worth $400,000, the Group 1 Oakleigh Plate was raced over 1,100 metres.

The 2011 Oakleigh Plate began with Avenue jumping well and running to the lead.

Solar Charged and Avenue fought it out for the lead down the home straight ahead of the rest of the pack until Eagle Falls surged from the middle of the field to win by a length.

Peter Moody was unable to win the 2011 Oakleigh plate, but got the double when both Avenue and Hinchinbrook finished in the placings.

Avenue put in a gallant effort to hold on for second place after being the pace keeper in the 2011 Oakleigh Plate.

Hinchinbrook had a horror beginning to the race when he missed the start, but put in a fantastic run to take third.

Varenna Miss finished well to place fourth while the favourite Catapulted was no-where to be seen.

Catapulted won his last start first-up in the Group 3 Rubiton Stakes on February 12, 2011, ahead of Eagle Falls who finished seventh in the same race.

Mark Kavanagh’s Catapulted began as favourite at Luxbet paying odds of $5 for the win.

Eagle Falls paid very nice odds at Luxbet, paying $23.10 for the win.

Eagle Fall’s trainer, David Hayes, will now aim his gelding at the 2011 Newmarket Handicap.

David Hayes commented after the race that he does not believe Peter Moody will run champion Black Caviar in the Newmarket, although it may just be wishful thinking on his part.
