Track Records Broken At Roxburgh

The realignment and resurfacing of the Roxburgh track proved to be a winner when three track records were broken at yesterday’s annual meeting.

The well-bred Light Of Da Moon broke She’s Allthe Craze’s trotting record for three year old fillies for the 2180 stand when she recorded 2-51.0. The previous record was 2-54.1.

Six year old trotter Girls Get Loose also broke a track record for four year old and older mares when she won the Kea Wai Building Handicap Trot running the 2700 metre stand in 3-28.8. Davy’s Gift held the record when she recorded 3-29.6 in 2015.

The final record to be broken was in the Roxburgh Cup when Enchantee’s 3-24.7 bettered Delishka’s track record of 3-25.0.

This was Enchantee’s second win in the Roxburgh feature. She won the race last year. It’s only the second time a horse has won the Roxburgh Cup twice. The feat was also achieved by Fait Accompli in 1972 and 1973.
