October 10: The Shark Club Smashes Sydney!

Mon 12th October 2020

It was a massive day of racing in Sydney, headlined by the Group 1 Spring Champion Stakes, where The Shark Club collected thanks to Montefilia!

Let’s take quick look at a profitable Saturday from the Harbour City.

The Shark Club Sydney Results

Race 4 #8 She’s Ideel @6.5 ✅?
Race 6 #2 Flit @11 ✅?
Race 7 #13 Montefilia @3.5 ✅?

Race 4 – She’s Ideel – $6.50

A mammoth effort from the Bjorn Baker trained mare, swinging the widest at the turn and sustaining an uninterrupted run to get the better of a wall of runners in a photo finish.

Race 6 – Flit – $11

The Shark isn’t called the King Of The Roughies for no reason, and he’s delivered yet another one here with Flit at double figures!

Alligator Blood was the hot favourite, with Dawn Passage and Subpoenaed also starting at short prices in the market.

However, Rachel King had Flit stalking Alligator Blood and peeled out just before the 400m mark, with the Australian Guineas winner having no answer for The Shark’s roughie!

Race 7 – Montefilia – $3.50

The Shark sent out Montefilia at $3.50 and she was absolutely smashed come the jump, going around at a $2.70 Starting Price… for good reason!

Jason Collett had the filly saving energy on the rail but was forced to search for a run behind Love Tap and Lion’s Roar, and still managed to reel them in with her big turn of foot.

Is now heading to Melbourne and looks very tough to beat in the VRC Oaks. More importantly on Saturday, she capped off a big fill up for The Shark Club in Sydney!

From Muswellbrook to the Melbourne Cup, Will is mad about all things racing and sport. Spent countless hours in the backyard as a child pretending to be Glenn McGrath, and has been known to get deadly late swing with a taped tennis ball.
