Campionessa wins impressively
Oct 16, 2014
On Wednesday 15th October, Campionessa contested the SKY RACING WORLD Ratings Band 0-70 Handicap over 1000 metres. The stable was very confident as this mare came back in extremely good order and David had her in tip top condition for the race.
Jumping from barrier 9, Campionessa's jockey Miss Bridget Grylls steered her straight to the front without using up to much petrol and strolled along nicely at a good tempo. Approaching the home turn she was cruising and it was going to take something good to run her down, however nothing came and Campionessa crusied in for a brilliant 1 length victory.
It was a credit to the Murphy Racing team who has experienced niggling problems with this mare but patience has paid off and it was extremely rewarding that Campionessa'a owner Murray Gain came over from across the tasman to witness this mares win.
Campionessa was strapped by Katie Moscatelli who is also her regular trackwork rider.
Congratulations to Murray Gain on his win.
