Allen Deed (2) has inked his name on an illustrious honour roll after taking out the Group One Adelaide Cup at Angle Park on Friday night.
The Jarvis Bale and Greta Bale (Lansley Bale – Jindara Bale) dog caught the eye last week in the heats when he unleashed a blistering finish to finish a tight second. The final was a different story. The Andrea Dailly trained dog began substantially better and was sitting in fourth around the bend. He found his favoured spot in the middle of the track and charged down the back, circling the field at a rapid rate to hit the lead with speed turning for home and streaking away for a convincing victory in a fast 29.48.
The early race leaders were Blurred Lines (7) and Valladares (6). They were both in a prominent position turning down the back straight but they checked off each other costing them valuable momentum. Oakvale Destiny (1) was also handy but she couldn’t match motors with Allen Deed down the back. Blurred Lines held on for second for Kelly Bravo, with the Jeff Britton trained Oakvale Destiny finishing third.
