FAVOURITES DOM­I­NATE

Weekend Gold Coast Bulletin - - RACING -

FAVOURITE back­ers have had a good run over the past decade. Seven of the past nine favourites have won, in­clud­ing bril­liant filly Sun­light (pic­tured) last year. Six­teen favourites have won in the 36 Clas­sic races run since 1987 — there were two di­vi­sions of the event in the early years. Longest­price win­ners have been Phe­lan Ready ($51 in 2009), Mir­ror Mir­ror ($21 in 2006) and Sun­blazer ($34 in 1989).
