Peak Pike Performance in Perth

Friday, 5th July 2019

WA’s leading jockey William Pike put on a riding masterclass at Belmont Park in Perth on Saturday. Not only did the hoop ride the Grant and Alana Williams-trained True Attraction (Listed Aquanita Stakes) and Mystery Miss (Listed Belmont Oaks) to victory for owner Bob Peters, he added a further three successes on the card. While the feature race winners each started at $1.14, Pike also won the opening event for the same stable on Cryptic Verse ($1.85), the second race for trainer Adam Durrant on Battle Storm ($1.18), and Nikitas ($2.90) for the Williams stable in the last. According to thewest.com.au, Saturday’s feat, which matched his best ever on one day, was also marked by at least four winners on five of the last six Saturdays in Perth. The feature race victories set a new benchmark for Peters – the double taking his stakes-winning haul to 27 in the State for the 2018-19 season.
