There was a lengthy delay to the start of Race One, the Julie Harris Service Plate over 1100m on the Kensington track today, Wednesday 20th July 2022 while Waikiki was replated.
Cruizingdafield (Deep Field/Calaway Cruizer) jumped well from barrier five and pushed up to take up the lead. Enjoying the heavy conditions (Track rated a Heavy 10), she was kept comfortable throughout by Jockey Tom Sherry. In the straight she was headed by Waikiki (Capitalist/Loucala) making ground on her inside but managed to fight back to win by nearly a length.
Congratulations to all her owners and connections. It was great to see this gutsy filly taste victory in only her second ever race start. May there be many more wins in store.
