Gee, that Utah Saints is a good horse. A winner at Flemington and Caulfield at his last two campaigns, the Matt Ellerton/Simon Zahra trained speedster just can’t crack it for a stakes win, despite best intentions.
Second in the Regal Roller-LR at Caulfield last August and, at his next outing, third in the Sofitel-LR at Flemington, Utah Saints was resuming in the Trojan Hand Tools Night Sprint-LR at Moonee Valley on Friday night.
Unfortunately, the God’s Own 4YO overraced for much of the journey and had to be eased off the heels of the leaders at one stage, but flew home for a well earned third in what was a crack field.
Those left in his wake included Gran Sasso, multiple Group winner Doubtful Jack, Group Two winner Testa My Patience and the dual stakes winner Secret Flyer.
