Forty-three top class combinations made up the start-list for the first qualifier for the Horse Power Gold Tour at Elysian Fields this morning. With $3,750 in total prizemoney on offer, the competition was red hot right from the beginning. Run as a two-phase class, there were a total of nineteen combinations who went clear in the first phase, therefore qualifying for the second phase of the round.
We only had to wait until the fifth combination out, Elliot Reeves and Waitangi Skynet for the first double clear. Only six combinations later, Clint Beresford and Emmaville Jitterbug also went double clear, clipping almost 1.5 seconds off Reeves’ time.
