Vroom Vroom Wins Auckland Handicap
Former Argentine Derby-winning 5YO gelding Vroom Vroom (Fitzcarraldo-Disneyland, by Ringaro) led all-the-way to score a decisive 3.25-lengths win in yesterday's $100,000 Listed Auckland Racing Club Handicap (1600m) at Flemington. Favourite Vroom Vroom (ridden by Craig Williams for trainer David Hayes) defeated 6YO gelding Gold Wells (Barathea-Olympic Aim, by Zamazaan) & Life's A Bounty (Bahamian Bounty-Imposing Life, by Imposing). Vroom Vroom now has 7 wins & 2 placings (including the Gr2 St George Stakes over 1800m on February 25) from 20 starts for $309,115 earnings. Hayes is now aiming Vroom Vroom (a former HK galloper) at the S$3 million (A$2.4m) Gr1 Singapore Airlines International Cup (2000m) at Kranji on May 14.
