Urbadboy, a three-year-old gelding by Restrepo, was a most impressive heat winner of the Southern Cross at Globe Derby Park on Saturday night (November 28).

After going offstride in the score-up, the gelding settled down at the rear of the eight-horse field.

Sent forward three-wide in the middle stages, Urbadboy moved up to lead the outside division.

Surging to the top in the back straight, the gelding was untroubled to hold his advantage, scoring by 2.5 metres.

The mile rate was 1:59.3 for 2230 metres.

It was his sixth win this season and sent his earnings over the $30,000 mark.

Urbadboy is the first foal of a 1:58 Jet Laag mare.
