SUNDAY’S TIGHTEST FINISH

Al Salaam and Baumgartner 0.10 lengths Gavin
The closest finish on Sunday came in the fourth race when the Stidolph trained Al Salaam went head to head with Baumgartner (Murray) and Quick Glance (*Bikausaru).  At the wire Al Salaam (McNaughton) got the verdict, with Baumgartner (0.10 lengths back, and QuickGlance 0.20 lengths off the winner.

In the photograph (above) taken by Gavin Macleod, Baumgartner is nearest the camera, and the yellow cap is all we can see of Apprentice Marshal Bikausaru.

Al Salaam by Mullins Bay (GB) is owned by the Sunmark Racing Three (nominee Rob Davenport) and was bred by Shadwell Stud.  The four year-old gelding has now won three races.

Congratulations to the winning connections.
