IT JUST wouldn’t be a major race night without a strong Australian Pacing Gold presence.
That was proven yet again by the recent APG domination of the Breeders’ Challenge Finals at Club Menangle.
APG stock made a clean sweep of the four Finals, led by Anntonia which collected her third Group One of the year when she covered the mile in a brilliant 1:49.8.
This weekend the action heads to Tabcorp Park Melton, which is set to host four pacing Group Ones and a pair of Group Twos.
And as you can imagine, APG graduates will be in the thick of the action, including an incredible nine representatives in the $300,000 decider for two-year-old colts and geldings.
Despite drawing the outside of the second row, Catch A Wave is a $1.80 favourite with TAB Fixed Odds.
Prepared by Andy Gath, Catch A Wave boasts five wins from six starts, which includes his Crown heat and semi-final.
On the topic semi winners, Interest Free is considered Catch A Wave’s major threat on the strength of his latest triumph.
Trained by leading horsewoman Julie Douglas, Interest Free has drawn to settle in a prominent position from barrier four.
Overall there are 21 APG buys chasing Group glory on Saturday night, with APG wishing the connections of all Finalists the best of luck.
