Phoenix Force scores run away win

Mar 31, 2013

Phoenix Force made an impressive return to the Hill stable with an all the way win in the Dracula's Haunted House Maiden Handicap at the Gold Coast on Saturday.

Ridden by apprentice Travis Wolfgram, the three year old was taken to the lead form barrier eight and from there he never looked in doubt, cruising along to take out the 1100m event by four lengths.

Having begun his racing career as a two year old under Bruce Hill, Phoenix Force was transfered to the Gillian Heinrich stable where he had five starts before returning to Hill last last year.  The son of Dylan Thomas has pleased Hill with his work this preperation and the win came as no surprise as he was impressive in a recent trial at Eagle Farm.
