SNEAK PREVIEW scored back-to-back wins under Cejay Graham with another powerful performance at the Sunshine Coast.
Having surged to victory over 1800m at Eagle Farm before Christmas, the 8YO showed his versatility by dropping back to the mile and dispatching his rivals with a trademark late burst.
The son of Smart Missile now has 11 wins and almost $425,000 in career earnings after his latest success, which was his first on his home track since scoring on his stable debut over 1100m in May 2022.
Since then, SNEAK PREVIEW has proved adept over longer distances but proved he still has plenty of speed left in his legs after coming from last under Graham, who preserved her unbeaten record on the gelding.
“It was amazing to see the old boy win two in a row,” said David.
“He really wanted to win that race, I thought he’d be out of play after copping the bad check at the 300–metre mark but he just picked himself back up again.
“I really liked the way Cejay rode him, she was more worried about keeping him balanced and helping him extend, which was nice to see. His recovery was excellent, as it always is, so we’ll press on with him.”
Many congratulations to his owners: Mr B Hurley, Mr M J Nestor, Mr K Hurley, Mr D Hurley, Mr M S Johnston, Mr P C Maher, Mr M J Coady, EST M Morris, Mr P F Lindsay, Mr H C Vernon, Mr D Lander, Mr M B Mcclintock and HOPER RACING.
