Brightexpectations Wins 2010 Pago Pago Stakes

March 29th, 2010

Brightexpectations, trained by Gai Waterhouse, took out the fantastic 2010 Pago Pago Stakes at the Rosehill Gardens Racecourse on Saturday.

It was a turn out for the books as the colt crossed the line first from the fourth barrier in an impressive win, the two-year-old is now Waterhouse’s hot contender for the upcoming Group 1 Golden Slipper Stakes (1200m) on the 3rd of April.

Dominating the odds in his lead up to the 2010 Pago Pago Stakes was Hinchinbrook who will now have blinkers, after finishing third.

Coming in second spot was Blackball, who ran impressively after starting from the wide tenth barrier, and finished three lengths behind Brightexpectations to exceed the colt’s odds.

Elsewhere, Pressday had come into the 2010 Pago Pago Stakes as a hopeful, but finished in a relatively disappointing seventh.

Also taking place on Saturday at the Rosehill Gardens Racecourse was the Group 1 Rosehill Guineas (1200m) – which saw a tough battle between winner Zabrasive and runner up Rock Classic, the Group 2 Ajax Stakes (1500m) and the Group 2 Magic Night Stakes.
