Impressive 6 Length Victory for Tough Stayer Porky Pies
Sep 27, 2019
Porky Pies told no lies at Nowra Races on 22 September 2019 winning the Class 1 Set Weights race over 2200 metres in impressive style, winning by 6 lengths.
Jeff Penza took the ride on the odds on favourite, "Teddy" and they jumped from barrier 3.
Teddy jumped brilliantly from the barriers and was able to hold his position at the front of the field.
After settling down out of the first turn out of the straight, Teddy secured the inside rails run just behind the leading pair. He looked very settled and comfortable throughout his run down the back side of the track.
At the 800 metre mark, Jeff let Teddy roll forward and begin his run 3 wide into the home turn. He quickly levelled up to the front pair and raced away from them, steadily increasing his lead into the straight.
It certainly was an easy race to watch with Teddy drawing clear and extending away from the pack all the way down to the winning post, securing a 6 length win to Olmeto in 2nd and Lady Grande in 3rd.
Thank you Jeff for an outstanding ride on Teddy and getting him home for the win.
Also a big congratulations to Deidre and Alex. We were thrilled that you were there to see Teddy salute.
