No joy in our best section which is very unusual,Rock My Lady sat up outside the leader Magicaz and was beaten on the home turn small field syndrome, having to race closer to the leader than usual. Sundance what a disappointment he was he has handled soft conditions before but he never looked comfortable and was gone a long way from home, he is better than that. Violent Snow jumped with In Fairness and pushed forward but would have been posted 3 wide as two others pushed up inside him,so Bayliss eased her back, after that she never really got a clear run at them until well into the straight. Timeless Prince ran on okay but was never going to win. Star Wars was our “LONGSHOT ” he was racing wide at the back of the field, was the widest on straightening, made a run at them but really didn’t look like winning, at $8 there were a lot of other players who thought he was more than a LONGSHOT, he ran well with his big weight. Pretty good results overall, this week its the MAGIC MILLIONS  at the GOLD COAST should be an absolute cracker with Houtzen drawing the car park (can still win) and Winning Rupert drawn to win and meetings at Randwick and Flemington, we will be looking for those big results for our horsebuck$ followers. So until 9am on Saturday enjoy the rest of your week and “GOOD LUCK ” from HORSEBUCK$
