Bennett Racing horses love affair with Flemington continued on Saturday with the brilliant straight 1000M win by Kalkarni Royale. The win was the 5th win at Headquarters this season alone by our horses. In what proved to be a great stalking ride from apprentice Will Price, Kalkarni Royale sat behind the leaders throughout, saving til the last 200m when she burst from behind to win running away. The mare having her 4th run this prep, recorded her 2nd win this time in and also her second Metropolitan win as well. The mare has been scratched a couple of times recently as the mare needs soft ground to shine and we feel that Good 4 ground seems to take its toll on her. Kevin and his team have done a wonderful job sticking to this and keeping her in good form. Was also pleasing to see Will Price take notice of what Jamie Kah had said in December when the mare was beaten into 2nd place down the straight that she felt she would be better stalking behind the speed.
It was the mares 5th win in 15 starts with 3 2nd placings and the win took her earnings to over 285k.
Congrats to all owners on the great ride this mare has taken you on.
