Sargent in double for Hawkesbury mission
One runner of interest at the opening event is I Say Boom, a half brother to the mighty gray Chautauqua, one of the country’s top sprinters who won three consecutive TJ Smith Stakes at The Championships at Royal Randwick.
Coached by Peter and Paul Snowden, I Say Boom had a pinch of support as he continued at Gosford, hitting the line hard to take fourth place.
The horse will improve with this run and should enjoy the extra 100m at Hawkesbury.
With the final race of the day as open as Sydney’s heads, Anythink Goes at topweight looks set to prove a tough one to beat.
Matthew Smith’s stable had enough of the gelding to start him in last year’s Qld Derby. He’s had a runback from a ban and it was a head turner.
Anythink Goes was allowed to get out straight at Gosford on the resumption as he was three lengths clear of the penultimate horse approaching the corner.
The four-year-old was then cramped on the course to find room and went to the line unchecked when he was beaten by just under two lengths.
It’s well drawn and we can expect further improvement so it’s appealing at a good value around the $8 mark.
Dubbo Galloper Transplant was endorsed for the race from $15 to $8.50. After winning easily at Dubbo, he bravely held his own for second at Broken Hill, who has won his last two starts.
