Wicked Style gelding Wicked Ways broke through for his first win in the 2018 Capricornia Yearling Sale Classic QTIS 2YO Plate over 1200m at Rockhampton on Saturday.

Wicked Ways is owned by a large syndicate with many of these owners from the Rockhampton area enjoying the win on course.  After being purchased for only $10,000 from the 2017 Capricornia Yearling sale the aim was always to return in 2018 and try and take out the $100,000 Capricornia Yearling Sale Classic race.

After achieving this success their sights are now firmly set on returning in 2019 to try and take out the 1300m 3yo Capricornia Classic. 

First prizemoney from the race of $79,000 has seen Wicked Ways overall prizemoney jump to $81,600 after only three career starts.

All did not go to plan when Wicked Ways drew barrier 12 but the well educated son of Wicked Style showed his customary early speed to take up a forward position but was trapped three and four wide when travelling in seventh position as they went by 800 metre point.

The favourite Gypsy Toff drew barrier three and found the rail easily early in the race before enjoying a soft lead in front, skipping 2.5 lengths clear as they went by the 450 metre marker. 

As the post loomed Wicked Ways dug deep claiming Gypsy Toff who weakened to finish in fourth place with Diamond Account & Ruby George filling second and third places.

Congratulations to all the owners, Mr M A Mclean, Miss J Brosnan, Mr C J Wessel, Mr D R Shailer, Mrs C L Henderson, Mr D L R Crocombe, Mr D Rethamel, Mrs N J Rethamel, Mr P J Kirkwood, Mr D P Bohan, Miss R K Thompson, Mr R R Thompson, Mr J N Kele, Mr T G Collard & Mr J M Wessel.

On this occasion Wicked Ways was strapped by Noel Balderson.
