Smartedge Goes Back-To-Back
Woohoo!! Triple Crown’s 4yo son of Smart Missile was super impressive at Randwick on Saturday when he notched up an exciting win over 1400m.
With Christian Reith in the saddle, Smartedge was taken back to the tail of the field from the wide gate and was spotting the leaders some 7 or 8 lengths at the 600m mark. Upon straightening up, Christian angled his mount to the outside and let him go. Smartedge has a great turn-of-foot and he put it on display to claim the lead by the 100m and was too strong to the line, winning in a tight finish.
This was Smartedge’s second successive win after scoring in style at Eagle Farm in his prior start where he again finished with a strong sprint to the line to claim the race by a narrow margin. In total that is now 5 wins for Smartedge and his owners, with prizemoney of $321,925 so far in his career.
The decision has been made to tip Smartedge out to the paddock with January’s $1,000,000 1400m Magic Millions race firmly in his sights.
Congratulations to all of his owners: Triple Crown Syndications., Mr J N Allen, Mr D Ward, Mr G J Sweeney, Mr V P Chau, Mr J P Monaghan, Mr M J Mcgrath, Mr D J Baker, Miss J Willis, Mrs J S Willis, Mr D W Willis, Mr J A Morrow, Mr R J A Morrow, Mr J A Martin, Mr M Mammone, Mr A J Martin, Smart Gold Dollars.
