SurPrize win at Moonee Valley

Feb 06, 2017

Recent addition to the Wilde stable, Prize, is showing to be a great buy for his new connections.

After winning a BM58 at Camperdown mid January, the owners were thrilled to be saddling up in a BM84 3000m race at Moonee Valley at his next start.

While it was a big step up in class, we were expecting a nice run from him and if he happened to sneak a place that would be a bonus.

There was a hot tempo up front, the race was made a true staying test. Jockey Dean Yendall had Prize in a lovely position throughout. Coming to the corner, the horse was travelling so well. Upon straightening, Dean hit the go button on Prize and they powered away in what was a convincing victory in the end. 

The win was a great thrill for his connections, which some are first time owners.
