Meech had the Mathew Ellerton and Simon Zahra trained Linguist ($7) quickly into a smooth rhythm out in front and the Helmet mare had plenty up her sleeve in the straight to score untroubled.

Race favourtite Urban Ruler ($3.80) joined in at the 250m mark but missed a place in the end.

  • 1st – Tribal Wisdom

Victora’s leading trainer Darren Weir saddled up the quinella in the Country Final with Another Coldie ($7) and Night’s Watch ($3 favourte) running first and second. $26 outsider I Am The Dark ran well with the 59.5kg to fill third place. Another Coldie was able to turn the result around after finishing third behind Night’s Watch  when they clashed at Bendigo last start. Both Weir runners came out of wide barriers but Night’s Watch had the tougher run three wide back near the tail of the field and did a great job to fill the runner’s up stall.

  • 1st – Another Coldie
  • 2nd – Night’s Watch
  • 3rd – I Am The Dark

Race 5 (2:55pm) Group 3 $200,000 TCL TV Stakes (1400m) 

Tasmanian sprinter Hellova Street couldn’t win the battle in the betting ring but was able to win the race on the track with an all the way victory in the TCL TV Stakes. In a wide open betting race Hellova Street ($5 equal favourite) was able to hold off the strong challenge of the runner up Supply And Demand ($5.50) with the other equal favourite Fox Hall filling third place. The top weight Ulmann was also vying for favouritism but couldn’t sustain his run in the straight to finish fourth. Winning jockey Brenton Avdulla took Hellova Street straight to the front from the outside barrier in the seven horse field and was never headed after that.

  • 1st – Hellova Street
  • 2nd – Supply And Demand
  • 3rd – Fox Hall

The Joe Pride trained seven year old Ball Of Muscle scored his first win in over two years when he out sprinted his rivals down the Flemington straight in the Absolut Stakes over 1000m. Winning jockey Glyn Schofield steered Ball Of Muscle ($2.50 favourite) to the outside fence in the ten horse field and once he crept away from his rivals at the clock tower, he was never going to get run down. Runner up Crystal Dreamer ($5.50) ran home from the middle of the pack while third placegetter Palazzo Pubblico ($17) made up many lengths from near the tail of the field.

  • 1st – Ball Of Muscle
  • 2nd – Crystal Dreamer
  • 3rd – Palazzo Pubblico

Race 7 (4:15pm) Listed $150,000 Seppelt Wines Stakes (1800m)

Outsider All Too Huiying produced a tough front running display to win the Seppelt Wines Stakes at Flemington. Michael Walker took All Too Huiying ($31) straight to the front from a wide barrier and dictated the pace out in front and the Gary Moore trained three year old colt has some petrol in reserve to hold off the challenge of the runner up Black Sail ($9). Sky Boy ($7.50) was also trying hard in the run to the line and found third place when the judge called a halt at the end of the 1800m. The $2.70 favourite Sambro stumbled out of the barriers for Hugh Bowman and the Chris Waller trained Fastnet Rock colt could only tack onto the back of the field. Bowman got Sambro to the middle of the track in the straight but he had too much ground to make up and never threatened the placegetters.

  • 1st – All Too Huiying
  • 2nd – Black Sail
  • 3rd – Sky Boy

The First Lady Of The Turf Gai Waterhouse and co-trainer Adrian Bott won their first VRC Oaks with improving filly Pinot. Winning jockey Stephen Baster discarded a tardy getaway and had Pinot ($5.50) in the firing line at the 600m. A line of four fillies were side by side on the home turn but Pinot proved to be the superior stayer and went on to claim the major prize. Bring Me Roses ($31) ran on from back in the field for second with Hiyaam ($21) filling third spot. The odds on favourite Aloisia ($1.80) was given a sweet ride by Luke Nolen but failed to run out the 2500m of the Oaks.

  • 1st – Pinot
  • 2nd – Bring Me Roses
  • 3rd – Hiyaam


Race 9 (5:45pm) Group 3 $200,000 Kennedy Plate (1100m)

Hugh Bowman and James Cummings combined to win the last race on VRC Oaks Day with Jorda winning the Kennedy Plate for the three year old fillies. Bowman elected to stay on the flat side of the Flemington straight from barrier two in the fifteen horse field with three other fillies while the remainder of the field headed to the grandstand side. Jorda ($18) got the better of the three fillies close to her but had to hold off the fast finishing I Am Excited ($5) who was skimming the outside fence to record a head win. The Mathew Ellerton and Simon Zahra trained Smart Coupe ($10) ran a nice race to find the third spot. The winner’s stablemate Demerara ($4.20 favourite) and the well fancied Debonairly ($5) were never in a winning position.

  • 1st – Jorda
  • 2nd – I Am Excited
  • 3rd – Smart Coupe

    obviously like your web-site but you need to take a look at the spelling on quite a
    few of your posts. Several of them are rife with spelling issues and
    I find it very bothersome to inform the reality then again I will certainly come back

  16. Umanizzare presidios

    Its like you read my thoughts! You seem to grasp a lot
    approximately this, like you wrote the e
    book in it or something. I feel that you simply could do with a few p.c.
    to pressure the message house a bit, but instead of that, that is magnificent blog.
    A fantastic read. I’ll certainly be back.

  17. http://acuriousmix.com/

    First of all I want to say terrific blog! I had a quick question in which I’d like to ask
    if you do not mind. I was curious to know how you center yourself and clear your thoughts prior
    to writing. I’ve had a hard time clearing my mind in getting my thoughts out.
    I truly do enjoy writing however it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are usually wasted simply just trying
    to figure out how to begin. Any suggestions or hints? Kudos!

  18. Luiz Fernando Monteiro Bittencourt

    An excellent read. I’ll certainly be back.

  20. Lelio Junior

    You actually make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find this topic to
    be actually something which I think I would never understand.

    It seems too complicated and very broad for me. I’m looking forward for
    your next post, I’ll try to get the hang of it!

  21. Dadado Veig

    Have you ever thought about including a little bit
    more than just your articles? I mean, what you
    say is important and everything. Nevertheless just imagine if you
    added some great images or videos to give your posts more, “pop”!

    Your content is excellent but with pics and video clips, this blog could undeniably be one of the most beneficial
    in its niche. Fantastic blog!

  22. Lelio Vieira Carneiro Junior
