Race Three: STELLA ARTOIS 1600

Irish Flame Leith Innes

A good run for close third by the topweight.

Mesmerize Isaac Lupton

Ran an honest race for second. Winner too good.

Great run. Just got out-toughed towards the line.

Back In A Flash Jasmine Fawcett

Won

He struggled in the conditions the whole way but he stayed on pretty well. The track conditions tricked him up.

Maestro Blu Mubs Kareem

Good run for third.

Race Ten: AUCKLAND CO-OP TAXIS 1600

Heliberry Taiki Yanagida

She was doing everything right but we got a check before the straight and lost momentum.
