A month between runs kept Super Suave fresh for the Winter Provincial Sprinters Final over 1200m at the Sunshine Coast on Saturday.

Super Suave qualified for the final by contesting a Benchmark 75 heat at Ipswich when finishing fifth carrying 58.5kgs with the heat winner Rocky Supreme carrying 55kg’s.

The final was run as a Benchmark 80 which saw Super Suave carry 55.5kg’s and Rocky Supreme 54kg’s a weight turnaround of 2kg’s in favour of Super Suave from their previous encounter.

Having been the only jockey to win on Super Suave the decision to put Brad Stewart back on was also another thing in the horse’s favour.

Stewart was positive on Super Suave from barrier twelve when getting away well, looking for a position just in behind the leading pack as they passed the 800 metre point.

As they rounded the home turn Stewart found himself a little closer to the fence than he had hoped but with Super Suave travelling well he was able to shoulder Sister Patti out of the way to create his own room.

The leader Mishani Redman was beginning to weaken with Super Suave, Rocky Supreme & Jetsonic all running home strongly.

Although moving out slightly in the shadows of the post Super Suave managed to get his head down on the line to score a narrow win.

When returning to the mounting yard, rider Ronnie Stewart on the second placed horse Rocky Supreme viewed the stewards patrol footage of the race and lodged an objection against Super Suave being declared the winner.  After considering the evidence from all parties involved the stewards were of the opinion the extent of the interference did not have a material effect on the finishing position of Rocky Supreme and dismissed the protest declaring Super Suave the official winner.

Congratulations to all the owner’s Mark Mclean, Justin Doyle, Mike Evans, John Ferreira, David Haynes, Nigel Haynes, Russell Heritage, Dean Holroyd, Guy Ledwidge, Neville Morgan, Peter Sawyer, Graeme Sullivan, Wendy Sullivan, Chris Wessel, Robert Mclean, and Peter Daniel.

On this occasion Super Suave was strapped by Brad Dorman.
