Race 5 Qantas Carlyon Stakes (Group 2)

Race 6 Wedgwood Vase

It was a beautiful evening at Moonee Valley for the night racing with the feature event the running of the Group 2 Qantas Carlyon Stakes. A small but top quality field was assembled for the 1200 m dash with the in-form Intelligent Star sent out favourite. His main dangers seem to be the classy three-year-olds Ustinov and Royal Code both resuming since performing well in the Spring. Intelligent Star seemed to have burst to a winning break holding off Ustinov but then Royal Code came from the clouds to claim victory in the last stride. It was an incredible win as he was held up for a run on the hometurn. The crowd was boosted by the presence of singer/songwriter Paul Kelly who entertained the punters before the big race.
