R9 HASTINGS17 September 2011
Windsor Park Plate G1 OPEN ($158,000), 1600m 1:34.05
Race Synopsis: The track was rated good but definitely had plenty of cushion, as the times were nothing spectacular all day for the calibre of horses running in some of the events. A leader/on-pace/handy bias played almost all day, with four outright leaders winning and four other winners of the ten race card sitting either outside the pace, tucked up handy the inner or looming up to lodge a bid at the 400m. The winning time of Jimmy Choux of 1:34.05 is significant, as it is the fastest time ever posted in this race since becoming a G1 and in fact this century. The previous quickest was Seachange in 2006 of 1:34.37 (two lengths inferior). The last male four-year-old to win the race was Starcraft in 2004, when the race was a G2, and he went on to finish third in the Cox Plate that spring beaten just over a length behind the three-year-old Savabeel. Jimmy Choux was hands and heels to catch the leader Mufhasa in the home straight then the stick came out for the money blows over final 50m for a well ridden and timed victory. Muhasa was game in defeat even with a track bias in play towards leaders and those sitting close, as a rival did not let him have even a slight breather from the 1200m to the home turn and the overall time reflects that. Booming is close to showing some form again and the stayer is going far superior to his stablemate Wall Street, which won this race last year but lacks some closing oomph this season so far.
