2018 Ubet Classic Sangster Stakes Group 1 May 5 - Morphettville

Shoals wins 2018 Ubet Classic Sangster Stakes Group 1 $1,000,000 at Morphettville (SA), 1200m.

Top class three-year-old filly Shoals Horseform put up an impressive performance to clearly dominate here and won for the third time at Group One level - her seventh win in ten career starts and topping $2 million in earnings. From barrier 15 she began best but had to drop back, settling well back and wide from the 800m.

Rider Tim Clark set her alight at the 500m and she flew around the field, turning in wide but travelling smoothly. Clark gave her a shake at the 300m and she bounded up alongside the leaders then put them away to win easily and impressively.

Secret Agenda Horseform  tracked the winner into the straight and although finishing very well, was no match for the winner yet finished a nice second. Mica Lil had no luck, was well back turning in and did not get clear until the 100m, bursting through a wall of runners to flash into third.

True Excelsior Horseform  had her chances and battled away to hold fourth, in advance of Whispering Brook Horseform  who poked through nearer the fence, running on well for fifth.
