A day full of lengthy delays for Canberra Cup Day meeting Monday, 8th March 2021 saw Formeinaway (Nicconi/Pole Dancing) take out race 5 the TAB Lickety Split over 1000m.
The 3yo bay colt, ridden by jockey Rachel King jumped well from Barrier 2 and held the fence. He was in front at the turn and was running away from them for what looked like an emphatic victory when a late challenge was mustered by Grand Lusitano (Benfica/Palace). Formeinaway dug deep and managed to hang on for the win.
Congratulations to Hong Kong based Damian Yap, it was good to get another winner for him.
