Platinum Kingdom made his move late down the final straight and easily overtook the leaders, however, almost gave it all away when he suddenly jumped sideways across the track.

The Magnis gelding was paying odds of $12 to win the 2013 South Pacific Classic at, while third place-getter Limes was the $4.40 favourite.

Stable representative Bruce Herd was pleased to see the trip over from New Zealand paid off for Platinum Kingdom in the 2013 South Pacific Classic.

“He certainly gives a hundred percent,” Herd said.

Herd confirmed that Platinum Kingdom would now go on towards the Brisbane Winter Racing Carnival.

Jonathan Riddell was the jockey aboard Platinum Kingdom for today’s 2013 South Pacific Classic.

“He gets himself worked up like that but he’s got the ability.”

“He was probably just too good for them really.”
