Reigning Meteor Gives Connections A Heart Stopping Win
May 01, 2014
Day three at the Warrnambool Carnival saw Reigning Meteor contest and win the Simons Waterfront Handicap ran over a distance of 1200m. Trained by local Matthew Williams and ridden by Dean Yendall the Northern Meteor colt started a tote favourite of $2.30.
From barrier 8 Reigning Meteor pinged the gates and settled half a length outside the leader Red Casino. Coming around the bend Dean steered the colt to the outside of the track while Red Casino chose to stay on the inside. It was battle up the straight with both horses going stride for stride. It was a photo finish. The TVN camera man thought Red Casino had won the race, and the numbers were put up prematurely, however after the photo finish was produced the judge gave it to Reigning Meteor! The owners erupted with a deafening cheer and it was a fantastic moment that was thoroughly enjoyed by everyone!

We would also like to congratulate fellow owners Marie Braden, Michael Byrne, Glen Darroch, Darren Gordon, Kevin Greene, Peter Lynch, Tim Mangan, Darcy Mangan, Leo Mccartin, Dion Nolan, Daniel Roberts, Steve Robinson, Ross Smith, Stewart Walter.
