Golden Bracelet For Core Asset

Healthway sponsored one of Albany’s big race days today. The feature race was the $22,000 Golden Bracelet Handicap, over 1600 metres, for fillies and mares, and our representative was Core Asset. The mare had been first emergency, and it had been an anxious wait for the owners to see if she made the field.

Core Asset’s good recent form ensured she went off a well backed favourite in the 14 runner field.

The race was run a blistering pace, led by Saramento, who was 6 lengths clear at one point, but jockey Peter Hall positioned Core Asset just behind the leaders in 4th place. On the home turn he moved the mare up to a challenging position as the leaders fell in a hole, and once in the straight Core Asset strode away to win by an easy 3 lengths from Movie World and Upmarket Lady. A deserved win for the mare, who has been in consistent form this prep, and Peter was delighted to win this race again, having previously won it with his great mare Shake Your Bon Bon.
