Roughie Smokin’ Joey has returned to form in a big way, winning the 2014 Group 1 The Goodwood at Morphettville today.

Jumping at 40-1, Smokin’ Joey only jumped fairly from the gates but produced an impressive turn of foot to run down Platelet who looked the winner in the 1200m sprint race. Riziz claimed third for local trainer Ken Sweeney.

It was a great result for jockey Ben Melham in his first meeting back since November when he was sidelined with hip pain and subsequent surgery. Melham made it back to back wins i The Goodwood after claiming last year’s race with second placegetter Platelet.
