Direct Charge Wins 2012 Maribyrnong Plate – Race 1 Results

Direct Charge has held off a late run from Crack A Roadie to win the Group 3 Maribyrnong Plate at Flemington Racecourse today November 10, 2012.

The two-year-old has now won one of his three race starts and has earned more than $100,000 in prize money during his short horse racing career.

Direct Charge won the 2012 Maribyrnong Plate ahead of Crack A Roadie, who finished second, and Shamus Award, who placed in third.

The Charge Forward colt was paying odds of $18 to win the 2012 Maribyrnong Plate at

Jockey Steve Arnold has been aboard Direct Charge for all three of his career runs.

“This guy’s done a great job here,” Arnold said.

“He’s nice and fit.”

Direct Charge placed fourth in the $250,000 Inglis Banner at Moonee Valley last start, despite experiencing no luck in the race.

“He didn’t have any luck the other day, he ran really well,” Arnold said.

“I thought he was a big chance today.”

Trainer Robbie Laing was thrilled to be able to win the 2012 Maribyrnong Plate with Direct Charge today.

“He’s a big rangy fella. 16.1 (hands),” Laing said.

“(there is) a massive stride on the horse.

“He didn’t have an electric finish today but hung on.

“He’s a promising horse.”

Laing also agreed that we didn’t get to see the best of Direct Charge in the Inglis Banner last start.

“Moonee Valley chased forward (and ran him) off his legs early,” he said.

“I thought it was a mighty run, I said to boys ‘he’ll win today’.”

Direct Charge will now target the $250,000 Inglis Classic at Rosehill Gardens Racecourse on January 14, 2012.

“I bought him from the January Classic sale in Sydney and that’s been our target,” Laing said of the 2013 Inglis Classic.

“He’ll have a run in Sydney late December or early January and he’ll have a run in the classic.”
