31/05/02 Stubby's Sly Ride as Rambler Takes Gambier Cup
JH.JPG (14071 bytes)Horsham based trained Barbara Marshman won her second Mount Gambier Gold Cup when Sly Rambler proved much too good this afternoon winning by nearly three lengths.

The gelding, who jumped the favourite with the bookmakers and on the TAB, was always travelling well just behind the leaders after a copybook ride by Adelaide based hoop Jason Holder (pictured).

After sitting in fourth place for the majority of the early and middle stages Holder then asked the talented galloper to make his move and the pair hit the front shortly after turning for home. From that point the result was never in doubt as they cleared away for a comprehensive victory.

For Marshman this afternoon's success was her second Mount Gambier Gold Cup. She had also won the race with Suliere in 1997. Incredibly both Suliere and Sly Rambler are by the virtual unknown sire Shy Rambler.

Jason "Stubby" Holder then made it a race to race double when he won the very next race aboard Summer Wind. That galloper also winning by a large margin.

A seven-year-old gelding, Sly Rambler (3/1 fav) stopped the clock at 2 minutes 39.64 seconds on the slow track. Showgazer (9/1) was second while Jewel of Kingston (12/1) finished third.

Last year's winner All the Action raced midfield and never made any real impression over the final stages before winding up in fifth place just ahead on Tuesday's Blue Lake Handicap winner Staff Party who came from well back in the field.

Meanwhile, injury plagued galloper Evacuation is headed to Adelaide after a runaway win in the opening event of the day, a Class Five Handicap over 1400 metres.

The Vincent Bradley trained son of Danger bolted clear of his rivals to win untouched by seven lengths. Bradley said after the race he'd come close to giving up on the gelding who has ongoing leg problems.

A short time later Dankworth jumped to glory by scoring an effortless win in the Auspine South Eastern Steeplechase. The dashing Victorian jumper was piloted to victory by Joe Hateley.
