Gee Gees Blackflash wins 2010 Tasmanian Derby

February 1st, 2010

The highlight event of the AAMI Cadbury Derby Day, the 2010 Tasmanian Derby, was won by Gee Gees Blackflash at Tattersall’s Park on Saturday.

The John Luttrell – trained three-year-old won the Group 3 event from the second barrier coming from the midfield to take the top spot over the favourite Kinnersley.

Luttrell was delighted with the unexpected win having not been 100 per cent committed to competing winning the $200,000 race in 2.17.51.

But the win was jockey Lee Smith’s first major victory, with hopefully more to come.

Gai Waterhouse’s Kinnersley was the odds-on favourite to win the 2010 Tasmanian Derby but lost to the local gelding accepting the second spot.

Three year-old Coulis took third place, while Excuse My French came in fourth.

Other major races of the day was the Swettenham Stud Bow Mistress Stakes (1200m) won by Dollops and the Motors Elwick Supervobis 2YO Stakes (1100m) won by Radha Rani.
