Extremely Rowdy connections at Cranbourne

Trainer Peter Gelagotis and connections of Extremely Rowdy could be seen celebrating their smart filly in style as the $4 chance backed up a last start dead heat maiden win to take out a 3yo handicap on Cranbourne Cup day.

Gelagotis was full of confidence pre-race and was justified with what he believes is a “very good filly.”

“This filly has shown us a lot, a lot of talent. On Tuesday morning, John Salanitri rode the filly in trackwork, he’d never ridden her before, and the way she worked was just incredible,” Gelagotis said.

Ridden by Jye Mcneil, Extremely Rowdy showed a convincing turn of foot to put 1-½ lengths on Il Cubo ($21) with Jewel Bay ($4.40) a further ¾ lengths away.

“Her best asset is the way she can quicken. So far it’s been able to get her out of trouble. Hopefully as she matures she will become a better barrier horse and that will make life a bit easier for her,” McNeil said.

Favourite goes under in Pendant

The shortest price runner of the day and by some margin was Kazou, many expecting the progressive mare to take out the Rosemont Stud Fillies & Mares Pendant at $1.60 with betting sites.

Alas, she was no match for Revolutionary Miss, who appreciated a sharp drop in grade having contested Group races in 15 of her 19 career starts, including her past 10.

Despite being beaten just 1.3 lengths by Skew Wiff last start at Group 2 level, Revolutionary Miss was sent out a $6 equal second favourite, her class showing through when coming off Kazou’s back to go on and win by 1-¾ lengths.

Jordan Childs, who was having his first ride on the multiple Group 1 placed mare, said everything went to plan.

“She came back and rested nicely for me. I knew when I presented her she was going to have a bit of a kick. The favourite didn’t quicken up as much as I thought it would, so it left it a bit vulnerable late. My horse had been racing well and deserved a win like that,” Childs said.
