Gai’s Choice Too Good in Gai Waterhouse Classic 2012

Aptly named mare Gai’s Choice has produced a remarkable run from a wide barrier to take out the Listed $100,000 2012 Gai Waterhouse Classic (1350m) at Ipswich today.

Ridden from barrier 15, jockey Jay Ford was happy to gamble on her sharp turn of foot and sat deep in the field for much of the race.

With such a short straight at the tight turning Ipswich Racecoure, horses who stick close to the lead generally experience success but the four-year-old managed to get around the field and fly home to win by a length in front of Mascareri and Miss Barwang.

It marks the third consecutive victory for the David Pfieffer-trained four-year-old who is now likely to target the Group 1 Tattersall’s Tiara next Saturday at Eagle Farm.

Pfieffer admitted some shock at the win and was simply hoping for a place finish after drawing the wide barrier.

“We had to chance our arm, coming here from a wide gate, we had it all against us,” Pfieffer said.

“She’s done it at both ends today.

“Three in a row now…when mares are in form you’ve got to keep putting them in races.”

Ford said the tactics of getting back were decided on after drawing the wide barrier and he too praised the horse’s excellent finish.

“From the wide alley we just decided to go back and leave her just the one crack it,” Ford said.

“She rounded them up very quickly and she was strong to the line, she’s going really well.”

The daughter of General Nediym has now won seven of 24 starts and collected $350,000 in prize money.
