The Restrepo gelding Urgoodboy made it three wins from his last four starts when he scored a fighting win at Port Pirie on Friday night (December 3).
After enjoying a saloon passage, the four-year-old worked to the front rounding the home turn and then held on gamely to win by a nose.
The time for the flying mile was 1:58.8.
It was his fourth lifetime success.
Bred and owned by Andrew Clarke, Urgoodboy is out of Group 2 winner Lucy’s Pride 1:58.9 ($102,452), and is her first foal.
