Love Conquers All & Obsequious Cement Top Quality Return To The Track

August 7th, 2010

The San Domenico Stakes Day took to Sydney’s premier Royal Randwick Racecourse on Saturday with two feature races lined up for horse racing fans and punters around Australia.

The first big event of the day was the $125,000 Group Three Missile Stakes (1200m) which saw eight top quality horses take to the jump.

Danleigh saw Hugh Bowman in the saddle and together they took the lead from the start and held on bravely.

However Love Conquers All went into the race as the favourite with Ladbrokes.com.au and the four-year-old didn’t fail to deliver, as with 150 metres to go he came from the tail of Danleigh to storm home down the straight and claim an emphatic victory.

The Mossman offspring was simply stunning from barrier two and maintains his unbeaten record at the premier Sydney track.

The second feature, and the headlining race of the day was the $1250, 000 Group Three San Domenico Stakes (1000m).

Solar Charged went into the event as the hot favourite despite drawing the wide barrier nine, but the expectations were too high for the three-year-old.

Ridden by Corey Brown, the Charge Forward filly took the lead from the jump but could not maintain the pace when it came to the home straight.

Obsequious sat just off the pace in second spot for the majority of the race, and with champion hoop Tim Clark in the saddle took it up a level with the finishing line in site to claim a length-and-a-half win against the odds.

So if you would like to follow any of Saturday’s runners throughout their spring campaign, or indeed any spring races, then head to Ladbrokes.com.au for the best prices available online!
