Three year old Al’s Kingdom backed up his strong recent performances with a return to the winners stall at the Sunshine Coast on Friday night over 1400m.

As has been the case in previous starts Al’s Kingdom was once again up on the pace travelling out in front for jockey Matthew McGillivray after being forced to work hard early for the lead.

After a competitive battle for the lead over the first 300 metres Al’s Kingdom found the fence ahead of the maidener The Candy Man. McGillivray was able to grab a couple of soft sectionals in the run before beginning to increase the pace passing the 600 metre point.

The Candy Man moved up to be on terms with Al’s Kingdom but when McGillivray asked him to extend at the 300 he moved away to win comfortably by 1.5 lengths.

Congratulation to the owners: Mr M A Mclean, Miss J Brosnan, Lucky Sixteen No 1, Mr T M Forrester, Mr A Stephenson, Mr P Webster, Mr B Cameron, Mr C J Wessel, Mr P J Daniel, Mr S Wilson, Mr J A Ford, Dr R P Williams, Lanvin, Lucky Sixteen No 2, Hf Racing, Mr P B Malcher & Mr B Hooper.

On this occasion Al’s Kingdom was strapped by Lyn Henderson.
