At Pakenham in Victoria, former Armidale Stud stallion Helike (Rahy-East of the Moon, by Private Account) added a black-type success when 8YO Australian-bred gelding Like A Carousel (Helike-Carnival Ride, by Spinning World) held on for a narrow win in the $250,000 Listed Pakenham Cup (2500m) for 3YO+, defeating Khartoum & Oncidium Ruler. This was just the second stakes victory of Like A Carousel's career and improved his record to 4 wins (including the Listed Harry White Classic) and 11 placings (including the Gr1 Sydney Cup & Listed Sandown Cup) from 52 starts for $678,570 in earnings.
