Helideck Wins BTC Sprint

Monday, 19th May 2008

Ill-fated Oaklands Stud sire Iglesia (Last Tycoon-Yodells, by Marscay) added a group success when 4YO gelding Helideck (Iglesia-Whirly Bird, by Prince Salieri) made it 3 wins in succession with a 2.75-lengths victory in the $125,000 Gr3 Darley BTC Sprint (1350m) at Doomben. Helideck (ridden by Ric McMahon for trainer Brett Cavanough) defeated 3YO filly Absolut Glam (Snowland-Pine Away, by Pine Bluff) & 6YO gelding Mr Hornblower (Admiralty-Anika Joy, by Tirol). Helideck now has 10 wins (also including last start's Listed Prime Minister's Cup over 1300m at the Gold Coast on May 3) & 3 placings from 21 starts for $281,450 earnings.
