Instalment has won the Listed MSS Security Stakes at Flemington Racecourse today March 10, 2012.
The three-year-old gelding won the $100,000 race in a photo finish that saw four horses cross the line within centimetres of one another.
Sharnee Rose finished a close second, while Americain Dream held on for third.
Mark Kavanagh’s stable foreman Merv Harvey was at the track to see Instalment claim his third career win.
“I was getting a bit worried,” Harvey said after the race.
“He hasn’t had much luck lately this horse.
“If he pulls up alright we might go to Bendigo next week.”
Instalment has now won three of his six race starts and earned close to $120,000 in prize money.
The Elvstroem gelding was paying odds of $15 to win the 2012 MSS Security Stakes at bookmaker.com.au.
Second place getter Sharnee Rose was the hard luck story of today’s MSS Security Stakes after failing to find a clear run in the final stages of the race.
The Nadeem filly is still yet to break her maiden, despite finishing a close second in a variety of top class events.
Sharnee Rose also finished third behind Atlantic Jewel and Mosheen in the Group 1 Thousand Guineas last spring.
The three-year-old has never finished outside the top three horses and has earned close to $100,000 without winning a race.
