Flash Of Light Wins Group 3 Dawson

ran away with the second running of the 3 Dawson at tonight, defeating a stellar field in a slick 29.45 seconds.

While trainer was cautious about his charge’s chances from box 1, the punters were unperturbed, sending Flash Of Light to the boxes a $3.50 favourite in a stellar field.

Despite a reputation for being hit and miss at the start of her races, Flash Of Light began well for a second consecutive week and took up second place behind early leader Nova Surf ($8.10) through the first turn.

The pair cleared away from the chasing pack, establishing a four length break before Flash Of Light made her move. Sweeping around the outside of Nova Surf, Flash Of Light raced to a powerful victory in a slick 29.45.

It was the second Group race title for the Balliang trained chaser, having won the at in February. The win was her 28th in 59 career starts and the $40,000 first prize took her career earnings to over $180,000.

Nova Surf was gallant in defeat, finishing three lengths adrift, with three-time Group 1 winner a further two lengths away third.

Delbridge will now take Flash Of Light to for the Group 3 before returning to Sandown Park for the $36,000 Group 2 over 595m.

The heats for the McKenna Memorial will be run on Thursday 8 July, with the final to be run the following week on Thursday 15 July.
