Virgilio Wins at Canterbury Night Meeting on 16 February 2018
Feb 20, 2018
Virgilio has notched up his 4th win when he won the BM77 1200 metre race at Canterbury Night Meeting on 16th February 2018, carrying 59.5kgs. Jason Collett took the ride.
Virgilio jumped cleanly from barrier 4 and proceeded to take the lead from the pack upon settling. Jason parked Virgilio in a great leading position on the rails.
At the 900 metre mark, Fly Forward was allowed to push forward and roll into the lead on Virgilio's outside. Virgilio was able to keep a nice position trailing the leader.
At the home corner, with 300 metres left to run, Virgilio levels up to Fly Forward and strikes the front. He showed a nice kick and all the other horses were unable to catch him, providing Virgilio with another win by a length to Kool Vinnie and Argent D'or.
Thank you Jason for a great, patient ride. We would like to send our congratulations to owner / breeder, Albert.
All at the stables are thrilled to get another win on the board for Virgilio.
