It was a huge boilover at Ascot Racecourse on Saturday November 27th as Hadabeclorka, the oldest horse in the 2010 Winterbottom Stakes field, scored an upset win in the latest Perth Summer Racing Carnival showdown.
The Brent Larsson-trained nine-year-old Hadabeclorka was ridden by star Perth jockey William Pike in the $750,000 Group 2 Winterbottom Stakes (1200m), Pike moving Hadabeclorka from the back of the field up the inside to storm home and score a decisive win.
Hadabeclorka was at a generous $41 to win, and defeated King Kool Kat ($11), who was given a beautiful ride by Melbourne Cup winning hoop Gerald Mosse, by one and a quarter lengths.
Whitefriars, the $3.40 favourite, was three quarters of a length further away in third while second pick with the punters Waratah’s Secret ($4) was not disgraced finishing fourth.
Hurricane Sky gelding Hadabeclorka has now raced 39 times for nine wins earning over $825,000 in prize money and will race once more this campaign when tackling the Group 3 Scahill Stakes (1400m) on December 11.
The next major event at Ascot is the 2010 Kingston Town Classic taking place this Saturday, December 4 and betting is now open on the race at premier online bookmaker Luxbet so check out their lucrative odds!
