Delfuego too classy at Gosford

A SMALL field and slow tempo may not have suited, but Delfuego proved too classy in defeating three rivals in the Class 2 Handicap at Gosford on Thursday over the mile, to kickstart the Easter weekend in winning form.

A son of Encosta De Lago, Delfuego has shown good glimpses of talent both at home and on the track, and took his second career victory in convincing fashion under a shrewd ride from Tye Angland, who went back-to-back on the opening two races on the card.

One who will benefit from going up in trip from the mile, Angland got to work early on Delfuego to mitigate the slow tempo, with the three-year-old too good for his opposition, winning by a length and a half from Celebris.

Congratulations to his owners and thanks to Snowden Racing!
