Oden, three-year-old son of Oratorio (IRE), kept us guessing in the 1200m MR 79 Handicap on Saturday.
He broke through the pens and had to be reloaded and then lost many lengths at the start. It seemed it was not going to be his day as he tailed the field – and then burst through to record an incredible finish.
At the wire he was 1.25 lengths clear of Butchie Boy and I am not sure how he and Hennie Greyling did it. Will have to watch the replay.
Bred by Mr A C Dickerson, Oden is owned by Gengiz Goksel and trained by Penny Fisher. He has now won four races and there must be more to come.
