Charles in Charge goes back to back!

Charles in Charges won the final heat of the Mitavite Summer Challenge over 1525m at Mornington today.

Charles jumped out quickly and crossed the field to lead comfortably, before continuing on with an even yet strong tempo. His opposition were struggling to hold a position behind him. Ridden brillantly by young apprentice Josh Cartwright, Charles was given a breather down the side without losing his momentum, before Josh quicken him up at the 400m approaching the turn. His opposition behind were struggling to bridge the gap, and when turning for home, he skipped away to win quite comfortably. His last 100m was as strong as his first.

This win as impressive for 2 reasons, as it was against open company, and his time was the fastest over 1525m for the day.

A large group of owners, family and friends were in attendance to cheer him home, and the loud cheers continued as he returned to the winner's stall.

Charles will now head towards the final of the Mitavite Summer Challenge over 1600m on Mornington Cup Day worth $70K.
