On a testing day for race-goers Von Saga brought up her fourth win when she took out the 1200 metre sixth race.

Jessica Eaton brought up the second leg of a race to race double when Aadelad won the 1050 metre seventh race.

Prepared at Strathalbyn by the training team of Wayne Francis and Glen Kent, Aadelad came from a near last position with a strong run over the concluding stages to win.
