It may have only been a Monday afternoon C5 plus race over 1800 meters worth just $3500 at Betezy Parkbut South Australia may just have found themselves a new super start in the form of seven year old gelding Remember El.
A new edition to thestable from West Australia where his form was around such pacers as David Hercules, Mysta Magical Mach, Lombo Navigator the later two both placed in inter-domion grand final and the champ himself I’m The Mighty Quinn.
Remember El started from the outside gate in the small six horse field driverfollowed star mare Repelem over to race outside that mare going into the back straight the first time Harding declared it on running their first quarter in 28.5 from there Harding never let Repelem and her driver get a breather Remember El pulled away going past the 600 meter mark to and in the end won by 7 meters clocking an amazing 1.55.8.
Repelem was game in defeat but last season’s Ian Duff Memorial & Jobies Babe winner at Melton was simply no match for SA’s new star.
