Rain Affair has won his ninth straight race is the Group 2 Apollo Stakes at Rosehill Racecourse today February 25, 2012.
The Commands gelding has now won an incredible ten of his 11 race starts and has earned more than $600,000 in prize money.
Rain Affair won his last start in the Group 2 Expressway Stakes at Rosehill Racecourse and has proved too good for his opposition once again in the 2012 Apollo Stakes.
The four-year-old gelding pulled off a seemingly effortless lead all the way victory to win the 2012 Apollo Stakes ahead of Shoot Out, who finished second, and Danleigh, who rounded out the placings in third.
Herculian Prince finished a gallant fourth in the race.
Rain Affair was ridden by jockey Corey Brown in the 2012 Apollo Stakes.
Trainer Joseph Pride was left in awe by the talented gelding’s race performance.
“It was similar to what we saw from him the other day,” Pride said.
“He’s an amazing horse to watch race.
“In the early stages there was bit of work to be done and he didn’t get there that easily.
“When Corey (Brown) said go he just left them standing.
“The acceleration was there at the end and he is just going to keep winning if he races like that.”
