What an eye catching performance by three year old Fastnet Rock gelding CITY OF LIGHT, to win over 1,300 metres at Hawkesbury when resuming after a spell. From barrier 13 and carrying 59 kilos, CITY OF LIGHT displayed terrific gate speed to roll to the front relatively easily and then dictated terms throughout, winning by four and a half lengths in good time.
The photograph of Tommy Berry having a big look around right at the finishing post pretty much says it all. CITY OF LIGHT was simply far too good for his rivals.
Congratulations to the winning CITY OF LIGHT owners John Leggett, Francis Kennedy, Barbara Kennedy, Edward Winter, Richard Smith, Marcus Higgins, Maurice Chester, Sally Edge.
