Free Wheeling Wins Champagne Classic

Monday, 23rd May 2011

Dual Gr1-winning shuttler Ad Valorem (Danzig-Classy Women, by Relaunch) recorded his 2nd Australian stakes-winner (& 3rd stakes-winner world-wide) when juvenile colt Free Wheeling (Ad Valorem-Miss Carefree, by Last Tycoon) prevailed in a 3-way photo-finish to the $175,000 Gr2 Champagne Classic (1200m) for 2YOs at Doomben. Free Wheeling (ridden by Hugh Bowman for trainer Peter Snowden) scored by a short-neck from fellow colt Dr Ichi (Dr Green-Vitzio, by Northern Fred) with a further short-halfhead to favoured gelding Hot Snitzel (Snitzel-Flames Of Paris, by Blushing Groom). Free Wheeling took his record to a win & 2 placings from 4 starts for $136,300 earnings. (Click on the link for full race details from Group Race Results at AAP Racing.)
