Waterhouse Successful With More Strawberries & Theseo In Spring Racing Carnival

September 5th, 2010

On Saturday the Sydney Spring Racing Carnival continued at the Royal Randwick Racecourse, with eight great races taking to the track.

For punters looking for an Australian odds comparison there is no better place than Ladbrokes.com.au, as many punters found out over the weekend.

The first feature to take to the track was the Group Two Furious Stakes (1400m) as race four.

Gai Waterhouse had a solid run from More Strawberries who secured her maiden win. The filly overcame the odds to defeat the Peter Snowden-trained duo of Divorces and Parables.

Runner up Divorces was convincing in what was her first up run for the spring, whereas stablemate Parables was the pre race favourite with Ladbrokes.com.au and didn’t create much of a threat.

The headlining event of the day – the Group Two Chelmsford Stakes (1600m) – was the fifth race of the day, and saw some great racing.

It was once again a Waterhouse-trained runner to claim the victory, this time Theseo.

The winner was guided by Nash Rawiller in the saddle, and has given Waterhouse the confidence she may finally achieve her career ambition – to win the Cox Plate.

Theseo managed to hold off a strong finish from the Group Two Warwick Stakes (1200m) winner Metal Bender, which finished back in second in a fantastic race for spectators.

There were another six superb races which took to the Randwick Racecourse and formed the Carnival, which will head to the Rosehill Gardens Racecourse next week.

So if you would like to follow any of the runners’ spring campaigns then head to Ladbrokes.com.au for the latest and more lucrative odds online.
