William Reid To Get Easter Underway
This evening’s Gr1 William Reid Stakes (1200m) at Moonee Valley gets a bumper Easter weekend of racing underway. Regular rider Glen Boss is the pilot for likely favourite Lucky Hussler (currently $3.40) who won this race last year, and who comes into the event in excellent form, his past two starts producing a win in the Magic Millions Cup on the Gold Coast and a runner-up in the Gr1 C.F.Orr Stakes when beaten less than a length by Suavito. Challenging him for supremacy are last start Gr1 winners The Quarterback, Holler and Flamberge, as well as Japonisme, Kinglike and Headwater.
