Santa Ana Lane wins Strad­broke

Sunday Tasmanian - - Sport -

TRAINER An­thony Freed­man’s de­ci­sion to be ruth­less about the horses he starts in Group 1 races has paid off again, with Santa Ana Lane win­ning the $1.5 mil­lion Strad­broke Hand­i­cap at Doomben.

It was the Flem­ing­ton trainer’s sixth Group 1 win of the sea­son from just two horses, as Santa Ana Lane and his mare Shoals have each won three races.

Santa Ana Lane ($14) also be­came the first horse to complete the dou­ble of Ade­laide’s Good­wood Hand­i­cap and the Strad­broke when he burst up along the fence and beat fel­low Vic­to­rian Su­per Cash ($31), trained by An­drew Noblet, by 1¾ lengths over the 1350m yes­ter­day.

The Good­wood is now prov­ing a good guide to the Strad­broke as Su­per Cash ran fourth be­hind Santa Ana Lane this year.
