  • 2nd: #12 Fuhryk
  • 3rd: #9 So You Too

Brent Stanley’s Bel Esprit filly Sweet Sherry picked up a Group 2 win in the last at Adelaide, improving on a unplaced Randwick run during ‘The Championships’ when galloped on to beat home the boys in the Euclase Stakes. Sweet Sherry came with a late run on the home straight to hold off Lindsay Park’s Group 3 winning filly Fuhryk, while the nicely-bred local So You Think gelding So You Too rounded out the trifecta with his fourth top three run on the trot.

Race 7 (4:04pm) – $1,000,000 Group 1 Robert Sangster Stakes (1200m)

  • 1st: #3 Secret Agenda
  • 2nd: #5 Viddora
  • 3rd: #17 I Am A Star

Caulfield horseman Mick Price celebrated his fourth Robert Sangster Stakes success in 2017 with his last start Group 2 winner in Sydney, four-year-old Secret Agenda scoring a classy victory in the Group 1 Adelaide sprint at a nice price. After tracking around in second throughout, Secret Agenda booted home on the straight to run away for jockey Damien Oliver defeating the in-form local Viddora, while Group 1 winning filly I Am A Star rounded out the trifecta with a brave third.

Race 6 (3:24pm) – $500,000 Group 1 Schweppes Australasian Oaks (2010m)

  • 1st: #5 Egg Tart
  • 2nd: #2 Kenedna
  • 3rd: #14 Ana Royale

Chris Waller’s flying filly Egg Tart enjoyed a maiden Group 1 success making it five wins on the trot in her first black-type assignment. Coming off a mile win in the wet by a big margin at Flemington from Anzac Day, the daughter of Sebring proved her ability in a brilliant late effort ridden home by Kerrin McEvoy. Well back in the field throughout, McEvoy presented Egg Tart on the straight and she pushed forward to hold off the Darren Weir-trained favourite Kenedna with Ana Royale rounding out the Schweppes Oaks trifecta in third.

  • 1st: #1 Amelie’s Star
  • 2nd: #10 Have Another Glass
  • 3rd: #12 Miles Of Krishan

The Darren Weir stable continued to reel in winners with a Group 2 victory by the Doomben Cup-nominated mare Amelie’s Star in the Queen Of The South Stakes. Ridden to perfection by Damian Lane, the lightly-raced five-year-old was back in winning form having just her third start back from a nearly two year, injury-enforced spell. The top weight jumped favourite and came from well back to prove too strong late, defeating the consistent Have Another Glass and market mover Miles Of Krishan ahead of a possible trip to Brisbane.

  • 1st: #7 Karacatis
  • 2nd: #6 Reldas
  • 3rd: #2 Kaepernick

Richard Jolly’s veteran eight-year-old Karacatis held all his rivals at bay for a Group 3 win on Schweppes Oaks Day, the son of Hussonet putting in a gutsy all-the-way effort in the DC McKay Stakes with Noel Callow in the saddle. From the outside alley, Karacatis was away well going forward to lead from Counter Pulse on his outside. Those two went around together on the turn for home, while a host of runners started to come out wide in the closing stages. In a big finish a photo showed Karacatis first to the line, hanging on on the inside to beat the Robert Smerdon-trained Victorian raider Reldas and Kaepernick for Team Hawkes.

Race 3 (1:24pm) – $125,000 Listed “House Rules” Queen Adelaide Stakes (1050m)

  • 1st: #2 Indian Thunder
  • 2nd: #6 It’s A Myth
  • 3rd: #8 Mintha

Victoria’s leading trainer Darren Weir continued his excellent week heading to Adelaide for a win in the Queen Adelaide Stakes with his two-year-old Manhattan Rain colt Indian Thunder. Having just his second start after finishing runner-up at Bendigo as the narrowly beaten favourite, Indian Thunder got into an awkward spot last on the fence turning for home. In a gun late move by jockey Damian Lane, the favourite bolted from last to get through late and just sneak home putting his head down right on the line in a three way finish with It’s A Myth and Mintha.

Race 2 (12:44pm) – $100,000 Carbine Club Handicap (2010m)

Second Bullet

  • 1st: #2 Second Bullet
  • 2nd: #6 Flow Meter
  • 3rd: #7 Magic Boy

Danny O’Brien‘s Group performed six-year-old Second Bullet franked the Victorian form in Adelaide on Robert Sangster Stakes Day enjoying a dominant win in the second as the punters’ pick. Backing up from a good second to Observational at Caulfield in the Group 3 Easter Cup (2000m), the gelding relished a drop in grade for the Carbine Club Handicap and was given an excellent ride by champion hoop Damien Oliver. Oliver had the favourite hitting the front up the back straight leading from local veteran Flow Meter and Magic Boy. At the 1200m jockey Todd Pannell shook things up moving from last to first aboard the Will Clarken-trained Evangelist, whipping around the outside to take up front running. Oliver was immediately off the fence on Second Bullet who moved up to the new leader coming around the home turn, before regaining the lead and charging home for big win over Flow Meter with Magic Boy holding for third.

Race 1 (12:09pm) – $100,000 MAC Drink Driving? GROW UP Handicap (1600m)

Royal Rumble

  • 1st: #2 Royal Rumble
  • 2nd: #6 Ashdam
  • 3rd: #4 Master Zephyr

Consistent local four-year-old Royal Rumble made it three wins on the trot in the first at Morphettville on Schweppes Oaks Day charging home late with regular rider Clare Lindop in the saddle. Lindop had the son of New Approach, who has now won three of his four starts over 1600m at the track, switched off at the back of the field that was led around by the two Victorian visitors Great Esteem and Ashdam. Brazilian hoop Joao Moreira meanwhile had the Phillip Stokes-trained Model Dragon box seating in third tucked on the inside of Excites Zelady. On the straight, Moreira finally got Model Dragon into the clear but she was very wayward and couldn’t finish off. Instead all honours went to the favourite Royal Rumble who peeled to the outside coming around the home turn, taking the lead in the final 200m and beating home Ashdam. Master Zephyr for Darren Weir got up on the fence late for third.
