Shoulders Storms Into Group One Megastar Final

Anthony Azzopardi’s chaser Shoulders was simply brilliant in taking out the Prelude Friday night, clocking a flying time of 29.69 over the 520m distance.

Shoulders started from box four as the $2.30 race favourite and began well to sit in second position behind early leader Lacy Louis. The 33kg son of and Bit Stressed took the lead at the top of the home turn and accelerated away to score comfortably at the finish by five and half-lengths. Lacey Louis was gallant in defeat and finished second, whilst Woods finished in third position.

Even more pleasing for Azzopardi is Shoulders drew the one box last night and will go into next week’ final with a strong chance of claiming his first One final.

Three of the five invited finalists performed exhibition trials at Dapto last night, with Queensland chaser clocking an impressive 29.78, whilst recent Group One National Sprint Champion clocked 30.18 and multiple Group winner clocked 30.26.

The box draw for next week’s $75,000 to the winner final is:

1 – Shoulders – Anthony Azzopardi

2 – Chica Destacada – Doreen Drynan

3 – Tommy Brislane – Steve White

4 – Flash Reality –
5 – Woods – Marie Burton

6 – Ritza Hattie – Mark Gatt

7 – Zipping Willow –
