RACE 1 - MAIDEN CONDITION (3-YEAR-OLDS) 1000METRES/5FURLONGS ROUND

Odds-on favourite Aria missed the start badly and could not recover. Father Pickins was hard ridden to go for the lead and that objective was accomplished convincingly. Turning for home without his advantage threatened, Father Pickins was not allowed to idle and was driven out to remain clear of Black Point and the late-closing Lazer Light.

RACE 2 - RESTRICTED ALLOWANCE II (TWO-YEAR-OLDS/NW2) 1000METRES/5FURLONGS ROUND

Well-conformed United States-bred filly American Invader impressed in the post parade with abundant evidence of being well schooled. Breaking alertly in second, American Invader pressured Baltusrol's pace-making efforts immediately and led into the home straight before going clear 300 metres out. Moms Treasure was outpaced in the early stages but finished second with a flourish to be just over one length behind American Invader at the winning post.

RACE 3 - $1,000,000-850,000 CLAIMING (THREE-YEAR-OLDS&UPWARDS) 1200METRES/6FURLONGS

Polly B, led on the bride into the straight, but failed to stay the trip while Lucky Stroke pursued effortlessly then came forward quite readily to assume the lead approaching the distance and coasted to a four and a half-length victory. Both Lucky Stroke and Polly B were claimed at the end of the race for $1 million each, which is quite a rarity in local racing.

RACE 4 - $250-210,000 CLAIMING (THREE-YEAR-OLDS&UPWARDS) 1000METRES/5FURLONGS ROUND

Fortuneonehundred led Bullet Raj and Laws Of The Code to the top of the stretch with King Within racing in fourth and travelling well. At the distance Fortuneonehundred was still in front but could not respond to the finishing speed of King Within, who ran out the winner by three and a half lengths. Milagro, second, was outpaced early, made good headway in the straight but got into the path of Light Brigade whose rider was unseated and injured in a fall. Following an inquiry, Milagro was disqualified from second and in addition was disqualified out of the race entirely.

RACE 5 - RESTRICTED ALLOWANCE III (FOUR-YEAR-OLDS&UP/NW3) 1000METRES/5FURLONGS STRAIGHT

Zi Beast used his very good early speed to be clear early and entered the last 200 metres still going well but was denied by the flying late finish of the consistent Killer Bee who scored by three parts of a length. Once again, Storm Valley made the frame from off the pace and will be better served when required to race over longer trips. `

RACE 6 - $180,000 CLAIMING (THREE-YEAR-OLDS&UPWARDS) 1300METRES/6 1/2FURLONGS

Ridden to go for the lead, True Whisper was under pressure from early by Royal Girl and King Nebarue. Not surprisingly Royal Girl met little resistance from the pacesetter 400 metres and was in front with 350 metres to go. King Nebarue kept on well for second without being a threat to Royal Girl who won by two and one half-lengths thus landing the 12th victory from her 36 career starts. Royal Girl can now be classified as the reigning queen of the $180,000 claiming level.

RACE 7 - RESTRICTED STAKES (THREE-YEAR-OLDS) 1000METRES/5FURLONGS STRAIGHT

Uncharacteristically Another Vigorous broke very untidily, scrambled to maintain balance but still disputed the lead with Nuclear Flight who proved stronger on the day and prevailed in the last 100 metres to win by three parts of a length. Nuclear Flight is developing quite a likeness for the five straight and seemingly quite a rivalry is developing between the two three-year-old speedsters. More will unfold between the two.

RACE 8 - RESTRICTED ALLOWANCE II (THREE-YEAR-OLDS/NW2) 1600METRES/8FURLONGS

Tradition led Bindaredundat and Reggae Road but the trio was in trouble from the top of the stretch when Master Of Hall rounded them in the turn to assume the lead in the upper stretch. Master Of Hall demonstrated superior class by going clear at the distance, was eased considerably inside the last 100 metres but was still six and a half lengths ahead of surprise runner-up Jacko Links at the wire. Master Of Hall, a late blooming three-year-old is certainly one to follow in the future.

RACE 9 - MAIDEN CONDITION (THREE-YEAR-OLD FILLIES) 1400METRES/7FURLONGS

Ashtrid, pursued by Lala Diva was early into gallop while My Mom Juss, slowly into stride, was rushed into the pace along with favourite Cerasini. With 800 metres to come Lala Diva assumed the lead on the bridle and turned for home in front. From there Lala Diva ran particularly well to be nearly two lengths clear of Cerasini at the winning post. Lala Diva's victory closed a fine triple for apprentice Oneil Scott who is now experiencing a rich vein of form.

RACE 10 - RESTRICTED ALLOWANCE V (5-YEAR-OLDS&UP/NW2) 1300METRES/6 1/2FURLONGS

Silver Surf, two lengths second eventually, set the early fractions with Mary's Gold, Seriousmanipulator and Lola Grey in close touch. Mary's Gold attacked Silver Surf early in the home straight and established the decisive advantage immediately to score comfortably.
