Pampelonne Wins The Shorts 2012 – Randwick Results

Tim Martin-trained sprinter Pampelonne justified a strong betting move when taking out the Group 2 2012 Shorts (1200m) at Randwick today.

The lightly-raced gelding jumped well from a wide barrier and was held just off the lead as Nobby Snip set the early pace.

Backed in from $8.00 to $5.30 prior to the race, Pampelonne showed real quality to hold off his more experienced rivals including Satin Shoes who put the pressure on late.

The win was the four-year-old’s fifth from eight career starts and his first at stakes level and he will now head to Melbourne for what will be just a light spring campaign.

“He’ll definitely improve. We’ll go straight to Melbourne,” Martin said.

Martin said the primary target would be the Group 2 Salinger Stakes (1200m) in November but also said he may run in the Group 2 Caulfield Sprint (1100m) on October 20.

It was the second winning ride of the day for Hugh Bowman who was full of praise for the emerging talent.

“He’s a quality galloper, he’s lightly raced and he’s certainly got bigger things in store,” Bowman said.

After plenty of drama in lead-up to today’s race, Manawanui’s spring ended in disappointing fashion as he was found to have bled during the race.

Satin Shoes picked up her second top three finish of the spring while Darley mare Appearance took third place honours.
