2010 Goodwood Won by Velocitea Ahead of Catapulted & Very Discreet

May 4th, 2010

At Morphettville’s Super Sunday race meeting over the weekend, Mick Price’s Victorian runner Velocitea claimed an upset victory in the $300,000 Group 1 Distinctive Homes Goodwood (1200m).

Four-year-old mare Velocitea ($7) hugged the rails all the way, eventually snaring victory by a long neck from the local hero and hot favourite, the Mark Kavanagh-trained Catapulted ($2.60) who had set the pace leading for all but the last 60m.

Lightly-raced but consistent mare Very Discreet ($13) finished off the trifecta for third.

Velocitea, a winner of seven of her 18 starts for over $550,000 in prizemoney, will now head to the feature races at the Brisbane Winter Carnival as will Catapulted.
