Performance of the Day – SWEET POTENTIAL
 
At just 19 months of age, Sweet Potential is an emerging talent. Today’s BOD 30.43 over the 527m trip was testimony to that talent, the 8 length victory lowering her PB by 4 lengths.
A daughter of Winsome Opawa and Opawa Sweet, she very much a product of Opawa Racing’s successful breeding programme. Under the care of Sean Codlin, her race record now reads; 7 starts, 4 wins and 2 placings. Congratulations Sean and Opawa Racing.

Performance of the Day – Know Keeper
 
With a display of superb strength and chase that saw him master the gallant pace making Thrilling Rogue in the home straight, Know Keeper was victorious in the Grp. 1 SENZ Duke of Edinburgh Silver Collar. This home bred chaser took his unbeaten winning sequence over the distance trips to seventeen. Great to see his breeder/trainer Garry Cleeve share the moment with his son Anthony and daughter Sydney as the solid silver collar was placed around their champion’s neck on the podium. Their operation is a real family affair. Congratulations Team Cleeve.
