Woorim Flashes Home In Race 9 On Derby Day


Woorim wins the Chatham (tab.com.au) Stakes at Flemington

The final race of Victoria Derby day belongs to Queensland with Woorim getting up to win the tab.com.au Stakes at Flemington.

From a wide draw he went right to the back of the field before being produced wide with a blinding turn of speed.

It’s the type of run he produced down south at Moonee Valley first up and something those north of the border have known about all along.

He’s the type of horse that needs a good deal of luck because of his racing pattern making Flemington the perfect circuit.

Michael Rodd was able to turn the widest and find as much room as he wanted letting him balance up perfectly and swoop down the outside.

Once he hit the front it was never in doubt as he streaked away in a fantastic sign leading into the 2011 Emirates Stakes.

He’s had a few excuses in his last couple of runs including track conditions and big weight, but today everything fell into place for him to show what he can really produce.

Rodd took over the ride from Damien Browne and admits he didn’t know a lot about the horse but he sure does now.

“They said he’d win that and he’s come out and done it,” he said.

“You’ve got a class horse like this, he won the Glasshouse Sprint in Queensland last year by panels.”

He said there was little concern about drawing wide because it had no impact on his normal racing pattern.

“This bloke enjoys a bit of room so it worked out well for us,” he said.

Representative from the Robert Heathcote stable Melissa Leitch says they’ve never lost faith in him despite a few issues over the last couple of weeks.

“We know the horse is capable of that, it’s just a matter of getting him right,” he said.

“We freshened him back up and we were happy coming into this race.”

After this he’ll be straight into the Emirates Stakes and it’s going to take a good horse to beat him at Flemington if he can perform at this standard again.

Woorim was great value with online bookmaker Luxbet paying a huge $12 with Thankgodyou’re here running on late for second at $3.40 and Toorak Toff getting out late for third at $3.40.

After the day started with a string of short priced favourite it’s turned around late with big value for punters.
