"IT WAS BLOODY BRILLIANT" - PETER GRAHAM TALKS ABOUT CEJAY GRAHAM'S FIRST GROUP RACE VICTORY

By Graham Potter | Tuesday, May 7, 2024

Antino didn’t make the final Stradbroke field last year, in spite of being a winner of seven of his eight career starts going into Stradbroke day, but he was still in action at the Stradbroke meeting, giving an indication of what might have been when he won the Listed Wayne Wilson by a three-length margin in one of the supporting feature races on the Stradbroke card.

That was then. This is now ... and Gollan could not be happier. This year’s Stradbroke place is secure and Antino’s effort on Saturday underlined a fact that Gollan has known for a very long time.

Antino is a very good racehorse. Read more ...
