Goodtime Hero, a six-year-old gelding bred and raised at Goodtime Lodge, chalked up his eleventh success at Parkes on Friday night (October 15).

Starting from outside the back row, the gelding settled down in third last position before launching a three-wide bid at the bell.

Goodtime Hero surged to the front approaching the home turn and was completely untroubled to win by 6.2 metres.

He carved out the last 800 in 58.8 seconds – a sound effort on the rainsodden track.

He has now earned more than $75,000 in stakes.

By Shadyshark Hanover, Goodtime Hero is out of the Safe And Sound mare Our Empire, the dam also of Goodtime Lollie (1:56.1).
