Aug 27, 2015

Damien Lane saddled up his second runner to the Cessnock program, to come out in race three with Watta General to ridden by Rachel King jumping from barrier 10 with a field of 10 to compete over 900 m on a soft seven.

As the Sprint race gates opened it was Segenhoe Valley the race leader, Ine Cat Wonder was on its outside Sunriseontherocks was in third covering Amalfi Scape with Rachel King settling, Watta General back on the rail around midfield in the early stages.

Coming to the turn Segenhoe Valley was challenged by One Cat Wonder with Amalfi Scape coming off its rump, Sunriseontherocks had run its race with Rachel King bringing Watta General to the outside of runners angling for a run at the leading bunch on the way home, and as the field turned for home One Cat Wonder cruised up alongside Segenhoe Valley and raced away, Watta Gneral was been persuaded by King, back in the field was running on resolutely however coming to the line it would be, One Cat Wonder, the race winner with Segenhoe Valley in second, with the honest Damien Lane prepared runner cruising in to be third missing out on the next placing by a length.
