It’s all too easy for fast Eddie
EASY Eddie made winning look easy at Randwick’s Kensington meeting yesterday.
With three scratchings, the field for the Autumn Carnival On Sale Handicap (1150m) was reduced to five starters with Easy Eddie dominating the betting and then the race.
The Joe Pride-trained sprinter was sent out the $1.55 favourite and justified his short odds with a routine win.
“That was pretty easy to watch,’’ Pride said.
“The thing about this horse is he has a couple of patterns [can lead or settle just off the speed], he has gone on a dry track today so that ticks another box on his resume and he is very consistent.
“I think he has missed a place once in his last 11 starts.’’
Easy Eddie scored his seventh career win at just his 18th start and took his prizemoney to nearly $350,000 when he strolled home nearly two lengths clear of Intuition ($3.60) with Ever So Natural ($20) a half length away third.
