AZZA Azza Azza has arrived. The son of Collision and Alotta Mojo won tonight’s Group 2 Shepparton Gold Cup in devastating fashion to take his career earnings past the $100,000 mark after earning connections $45,000 with tonight’s victory.
It was a very similar performance to his heat win after spearing to the front early and giving the chasing brigade no chance from there. This exciting chaser has now won 20 of his 30 lifetime starts and there is plenty more wins on the horizon.
Dyna Villa started the race as the clear second favourite but seemed to stumble soon after box rise and was unable to get into the race from there, finishing a clear last. The son of Collision and Roxio Bale was found to have a mild strain in both thighs and was given a three day stand down after a post-race vet check.
Both Allen Malik and Tiggerlong Amigo found the line strongly to fill the minor placing, however neither were ever winning possibilities.
