SIX STARTERS for two wins, a second and three thirds.
That was the record for progeny of Panspacificflight racing in both Australia and New Zealand over Anzac weekend — Little Rascal, first, and Arden’s Choice, third in a Group 1, on premier night at Alexandra Park on Friday, 24 April; Glenisla third at Newcastle in New South Wales on the Saturday; The Manipulator second at Rangiora and Last Flight In third in Tasmania on the Sunday (both badly checked); and, to round off Anzac weekend, Southern Pursuit first, on debut, at Gore on the Monday.
Southern Pursuit was one of the more impressive maiden winners of the season in Southland. The three-year-old gelding was six lengths off the pace when he started his run at the 800-metre mark and was caught three-wide without cover from that point. The final half was cut out in 57.6 off the front.
