Sharky Holds On For Third At Port
May 19, 2014
The Marc Quinn stable accepted with Sharky in race six of the Port Macquarie meeting held on the 18th of May with a field of 14 heading out in the 1500 meter benchmark 55 with Andrew Adkins aboard.
On leaving the gate Sharky was well out with Adkins guiding his mount to be in the top 4 and after 200m proceeded to go to the front with Cool Tycoon on its inside and Ransom Moment off its left flank.
Coming to the 800m Ransom Moment moved up on Sharky's inside to make a line of two with Blinking Rules attempting to even up on the leading pair.
On entering the straight Sharky fanned to be 5 off the fence and headed for the judge, Pradnya was coming up the inside, and Shadow Rein was full steam down the outside on fresh legs.
Coming to the wire it was to be the $5.50 fav, Shadow Rein landing the prize with Pradnya($7)in second with Sharky($7) rounding out the Trifecta with the time of 1:32.95 with the last 600m in 36:31.
