Monday, 9th November 2009

European 2001 Horse-Of-The-Year & 6-time Gr1-winning former Darley shuttler Fantastic Light (Rahy-Jood, by Nijinsky) added a black-type success when gelded son It’llbefantastic (Fantastic Light-Quantum Leap, by Regal Classic) prevailed in a 3-way photo-finish to the $150,000 Listed Hilton Stakes (1400m) for 3YOs at Flemington. It’llbefantastic (ridden by Glen Boss for trainer Dean Howard) scored by a nose from the colt Silver Spur (Flying Spur-Spectroscope, by Geiger Counter) with a further half-head to top-weighted colt & favourite Governance (Flying Spur-Nahayan, by Zabeel). It’llbefantastic (a $26,000 yearling at the 2008 Inglis Melbourne Premier Sale & subsequently passed-in for $25,000 at the 2008 Inglis Victorian Ready-To-Run Sale) now has 2 wins & 2 placings from 4 starts for $101,835 earnings.
