Satch makes it a hat-rick

Dec 26, 2011

Christmas arrived early for the Hill stable when Satch scored the biggest win of his career so far by taking out the QLD Barrier Trials on Sky Class 6 Plate at Doomben on Saturday.

Jumping from the inside gate, the four year old traveled comfortably throughout the race and when the run came in the straight he fought hard to beat off the fast finishing Grey Assignment by a half head.

It was the third win in a row for the son of Hussonet who was stepping up in grade after two solid victories at the Sunshine Coast.

The win takes his earnings to just over $84,000 and will hopefully earn him a start in the Stayers Cup over 1800m on Magic Millions Day.
