Burdekin Blues Wins George Moore Stakes

On Saturday Doomben hosted the $200 000 Group 3 George Moore Stakes where the Barry Baldwin-trained sprinter Burdekin Blues claimed a dazzling all-the-way victory.

Ridden by Shane Scriven the speedy Burdekin Blues ($3.20), winner of the Express Way Stakes, defeated a brave Zero Rock ($7.50), who chased the early leader and eventual leader the whole race, by three-quarters-of-a-length with the ever-consistent Forestreno ($15) another length back in third.

The five-year-old winner clocked a scintillating 1:8.05 seconds over the 1200m, less than two tenths of a second outside the track record. The son of Sequalo now boasts an impressive race record of 10 wins from 17 career starts for prize earnings of over $585 000.

It was a devastating run for The Jackal, the topweight only managing to finish seventh after missing the start, unable to make up enough ground to come into contention.

Baldwin has said there is a high possibility Burdekin Blues will now be aimed at the Bat Out of Hell (900m) on January 2 at the Gold Coast in the lead-up to his ultimate goal, the Group 1 Lightning Stakes (1100m) at Flemington in February.
