I Wish I Win takes out the $10MILLION Golden Eagle after ‘a gun run’ by jockey Luke Nolen – with the iconic Black Caviar pairing completing a fairytale return
Top jockey Luke Nolen has produced ‘a gun run’ on I Wish I Win, taking out the $10million Golden Eagle at Rosehill Racecourse on Saturday afternoon.
The iconic Black Caviar pairing of Nolen and trainer Peter Moody got the four-year-old gelding over the line, clinging on to hold off Hugh Bowman and the fast-finishing Fangirl, with Gypsy Goddess nabbing third.
It was a fairytale win for Nolen in particular, who has spent significant chunks of time out due to injury, while Moody’s return to racing has shown despite the smaller operation, he can win the biggest of big races.
The fourth richest race on turf in the world, the Golden Eagle was the brainchild of Racing NSW supremo Peter V’landys, and punters, bathed in glorious Sydney sunshine, flocked to the track for the fourth edition of the race.
More to come…
