If ever a horse deserved a Saturday city win it was COOL SEQUENCE. A tough, durable gelding who prior to this, had lined up on 26 occasions for 4 wins and 17 placings yielding about $100k.
His most deserved victory at Doomben Saturday took his earnings to $144k and put the broadest of smiles on his delighted owners.
With Boris Thornton riding desperately the six-year-old scrambled home in a photo finish after shooting clear on straightening in the BM75 1110m event. Trainer Steve O’Dea, who’s enjoying a purple patch with PROVEN gallopers of late, will look for a similar event in coming weeks.
A son of the late SEQUALO, COOL SEQUENCE was purchased for a bargain price of $36k at the Gold Coast March Yearling Sale, which Proven Thoroughbreds will be attending again this year.
COOL SEQUENCE’S fifth career win was PROVEN’S 11th in 2019.
