The classy Century Stand (AUS) colt, Call Me Earl, carrying top weight, proved his Classic potential when holding off a determined challenge from Super Good in Saturday’s 1600m Tote Free Handicap.
His delighted owners, Diz Buckler and Fiona Olivier, were there to congratulate him. Call Me Earl is out of the Rabah (GB) mare Al Czarina and was bred by Sarahdane Stud. He is trained by Alyson Wright and was ridden by Francois Herholdt. Francie had a great day, this being his third winning ride that afternoon.
