Love Las Vegas Wins At Wyong

Having finished just over five lengths from the winner when racing first-up this time in off the back of three barrier trials, four-year-old Casino Prince mare Love Las Vegas headed to Wyong where she proved too good, shedding her maiden status in the Biochem Water F&M Plate (1200m) and highlighting brighter things to come.

Ridden by leading hoop Hugh Bowman, Love Las Vegas drifted back to last on the inside where she settled with Gerald Ryan's highly-touted Pirapala on her outside.

With the tempo set by the front runners being slightly easy, four of the eight runners were travelling to the lead to take up the running.

The Wayne Austin-trained Invincible Light eventually went to the lead with Irithea also travelling forward to settle in second position on the outside.

As the race favourite Pirapala started to make her move from back in the pack with jockey Brenton Avdulla surging her forward, Bowman didn't panic as he tacked onto the favourite’s back.

As the 300m mark was reached and the field had turned into the home straight, Pirapala had pulled herself up to the leading horses with the John O’Shea-trained Brittany also making a challenge.

Just as Irithea hit the lead and started to pull away; Love Las Vegas came off the back of the favourite and charged down the middle of the course to snatch a half-head victory, and in the process registering her first victory.

Purchased from the Magic Millions yearling sale from the draft of Edinburgh Park, Love Las Vegas is out of the Made Of Gold mare Hearts Of Gold.

Top Of My List Takes Out The Listed Sydney Markets Lord Mayor's Cup 2000m

Top Of My List and Tim Clarke made it two wins in a row in taking out the Sydney Markets Lord Mayor's Cup 2000m at Rosehill yesterday . Tim Clarke had this to say on her run "She was good. She had to rise in weight today and get back on top of the ground. She was able to control the race from outside the speed. The more I ride her the more I get to know her. She likes to flow through her gears. You can't just get her to dash off the mark. I thought she gave a good kick at the top of the straight. She was vulnerable late but she kept sticking her head out ".
