Consistent stayer and stable favourite FANTASTIC MAN returned to form at Canterbury Night Races on November 16 when he took out the TAB REWARDS HANDICAP (1900m) under Tye Angland.
The imposing 5-year-old settled behind the leading pair and scored some cheap, early sectionals before a mid-race move from one of the back runners injected some speed into the race at the 800m mark. This set the stage perfectly for the big moving gelding who was able to build his momentum, roll into the straight and make a strong run down the outside of the field, coming over the top of them in the nick of time to snatch victory in a tight photo finish.
Congratulations to his owners Judy McCallum & Gayle Stanley!
