Platelet has executed the elusive Adelaide double, winning the 2013 The Goodwood at Morphettville racecourse today on the back of her Robert Sangster Stakes win.
The four-year-old stormed down the final straight to win the 2013 The Goodwood in front of Conservatorium, who finished second at big odds, and Altar, who passed the post in third.
It was a case of déjà vu for Platelet, who won the Group 1 Robert Sangster Stakes by almost a length at the same track on April 27.
Platelet has now won seven of her 19 race starts and has earned more than $945,000 in prize money during her career.
The Strategic mare has failed to miss a placing this preparation and appears in the best form of her career.
Platelet is trained at Ballarat by Darren Weir, however, appears to favour the Morphettville track.
The talented mare was paying odds of $9.50 to win the 2013 The Goodwood at bookmaker.com.au.
Race favourite to win the 2013 The Goodwood, Moment Of Change, finished unplaced in the $500,000 race.
Moment Of Change has won five of his 13 race starts and has earned more than $70,000 in prize money.
While he improved off his tenth placing in the Group 1 Canterbury Stakes last start, it wasn’t enough to grant him the win in today’s 2013 The Goodwood.
