Mr Meddle picks up bonus
While he was racing out of his grade in free-for-all company tonight, Mr Meddle again put in a top performance in running a nice 4th behind an impressive Mach Gladiator.
Able to hold up from his inside barrier early, he secured a nice run in the trail throughout. However, with little pressure on the pacemaker Mach Gladiator, it meant he was able to dictate and then sprint them home. At the 100m Mr Meddle had run into a clear second but the quick sprint home is not really his go and he was bombed by first Choise Achiever and then Here We Go Again in the run to the line.
However, tonight was always going to be a win-win situation for his owners Warwick and Una Sparks as irrespective of his placing in the race, he was always going to be awarded the Met Multiplier Bonus of $7500. The Met Multiplier has been an excellent initiative by Addington over the last few years and provides a real reward for those horses and their connections that prove loyal to racing on the course.
Congratulations to the Sparks' and it is good to see a great run continuing!
Its smiles all around as Mr Meddle receives the Met Multiplier bonus of $7500.
