Glen Gallon Draws Box 1 Favouritism For Group 1 Sky Racing Topgun

Queensland star Glen Gallon has been installed a $3.50 favourite after drawing box one in the 1 Topgun – this year worth $150,000 to the winner for the first time in the race’s 19-year history.

Trained by Tony Brett (who took out the 2005 version of this race with Black Enforcer), Glen Gallon will push his prizemoney to over $450,000 if successful in Saturday’s extravaganza. The son of U.S. sire and Incoherent sent an ominous warning to his rivals with a sizzling 29.66 trial at last week. His record of three wins from five starts off the red box underlines his favouritism in ’s richest invitation-only event.

Reigning Australian Cup winner has also fared well after the box draw, with the Ros Hume-trained star to exit box two on Saturday night. The daughter of and Zulu Zepha is blessed with enough early speed to take up a prominent position in the all-important run to the first turn.

Andrea Dailly and Jason Thompson both go into this year’s event with a two-pronged attack, with Thompson aiming to win his third Topgun after successes with No Intent and .

New South Wales will be represented by the speedy – already a Group winner when exiting box eight in July.

As always, patrons on course for the 2012 TOPGUN will have the chance to win some amazing prizes, including AFL memberships, bikes for the children, TAB giveaways and entertainment for all ages in what has become one of the biggest nights at The Meadows.
