Race favourite Oregon’s Day has just managed to hold on to beat a luckless Swampland in the Chandler Macleod Plate this afternoon.

Oregon’s Day was settled within the field as Forgeress took up the early running and set a fair tempo for the classy field of fillies.

Working into the clear early in the final straight, jockey Mark Zahra was greeted with a smart turn of foot as the mare hit the line well, but Swampland was arguably the run of the race after finally getting out late and finishing second by a short head.

Enjoying a carefree run in transit, jockey Mark Zahra produced the horse with 300m to run and was greeted with a big turn of foot; beating Theanswermyfriend with 100m to run.

Vega Magic has continued his impressive and undefeated run of form since transferring to the care of Lindsay Park; leading from start to finish to claim a dominant win in the Group 1 Memsie Stakes (1400m).

The former Perth galloper was sent off a clear $2.25 favourite in Memsie Stakes betting markets and left nothing to chance as he immediately strode to the lead and set a fair tempo.

Immediately responding when he was asked for an extra effort at the top of the straight, the Lope De Vega gelding always appeared the winner and stamped himself as a serious chance for The Everest in Sydney in October.

  • 1st – Vega Magic
  • 2nd – Black Heart Bart
  • 3rd – Tosen Stardom

  • 1st – Hell Or Highwater
  • 2nd – Guardini
  • 3rd – Amelie’s Star
