Strong fields for Friday races at Greenwattle

FRIDAY’S Sponsors’ Race Day at Greenwattle Racecourse at Sale featured a showing of local and city-based gallopers.

With the track rated a “good four” and the rail out seven metres the entire circuit, the race one maiden plate was won by the Michael Moroney-trained Alabama Express, who got home from fellow Flemington-trained horse Wedgetail.

The second race saw Exclusively Ours win the three-year-old and up maiden plate, which was followed by victory for Cranbourne horse Riotous Mischief in race three maiden.

In the 1427m maiden plate, Adversary won from barrier six, before Moroney scored his second winner for the day, winning race five with Wham.

In race six, the benchmark 58 handicap, Go Pro won from Tugga War, trained by Brian Park of Bundalaguah.

Race seven featured another benchmark 58 handicap, with Immemann passing the post before She’s Sensational.

The final race saw four-year-old Ritorno win for Cranbourne trainer Robbie Laing.

The next race meeting at Greenwattle will take place on Sunday, March 31.
