The newly gelded REPUBLIC scored at Wyong Race Club in the Halekulani 3YO Maiden Plate (1350m) under Tye Angland last Thursday.
Racing in blinkers for the first time, Angland settled the son of Snitzel in third spot, just off the speed, where he travelled well before coming with a sustained run in the home straight. The duo broke clear in the final furlong and had to dig deep to stave of a late challenge to gamely hold on for the win.
Congratulations to the owners Mrs J Mackay and Canning Downs Stud!
