Black Opal Swims at Werribee

Apr 06, 2020

Black Opal proved too strong in the wet conditions on Saturday at Werribee, leading from start to finish to take out the Cor Cordis 0-58 Handicap over 1100m.

Rarely running a bad race in his twelve race starts to date, the Statue Of Liberty gelding looks to be in for a promising winter, after notching his second win, with both having been on softer tracks. 

Steered by Jarrod Fry, the four-year-old showed his usual early speed to take up the lead, swimming through the Heavy 10 track condition to win by a long neck on the line.

Black Opal's win was the icing on the cake for Team Moloney on Saturday, with Bromes returning to form with a second placing earlier in the day at Werribee, and Fine Dane running a strong, albeit luckless, third at Caulfield.
