Shadow flys on dry track

Aug 16, 2012

Flying Shadow recorded his fifth career win earlier this month by taking out the Coffee Bug Class 6 Plate at the Gold Coast.

Ridden by Ken Pope the Shadow Creek gelding traveled comfortably behind the leaders before making his move in the straight and letting down to beat home race favourite So So Sure by a length.

The six year old started at long odds in the 1200m event but the win came as no surprise to trainer Bruce Hill, “He’s got ability and he’s been working well he just needed a dry track and finally got one”, he stated.
