There was a LOT to like about Holding The Baby’s victory in the Southern Cross Austereo Plate over 1550m at Morphettville on Wednesday.
The Shinzig 3YO was gone for all money by the time they turned for home but grew another leg in the straight to score by close enough to two lengths to record his initial win.
Bred by Kirkliston Stud and out of the multiple winning Encosta de Lago mare, Croquet, Holding The Baby was snapped up by Michael Duffield at the 2011 Adelaide Magic Millions and is trained across the road by leading South Australian mentor Daniel Clarken (below).

Duffield and Clarken are also responsible for Shinzig’s best 3YO to date: the 4-time city winner and Caulfield stakes winner Psychic Mick.
