The mid-week meeting on the Kensington track held 10th March 2021 gave Marway (Hemingway/Maredamah) his first Randwick win and a track record in the Bonnie Miller Handicap over 1150m. The speedster from Rockhampton gave us and his owners such a thrill to win in the manner he did.
Ridden masterfully by jockey Josh Parr, he jumped the best from the widest gate. Still in the lead, Josh kept travelling wide until he could cross to the fence comfortably. Race favourite Vowmaster (Written Tycoon/Bring a Ring) came to Marway to contest the lead in the straight but tired out of it as the second challenger came in the form of Matchmaker (Makfi/Love Somebody). Marway showed plenty of courage today and fended them all off to take out the resounding win.
Congratulations to his owners, the Sturgiss and Wagner couples, who were ably represented in the winner’s circle by mutual friends Bill and Di Ouston.
