Flash Of Light Wins Rookie Rebel

On Saturday night at The Meadows’ cracker race meeting, Flash Of Light was the only pre-race favourite in any of the Group features to claim victory when she took out the $25 000 Group 2 Macro Meats Rookie Rebel.

The Mark Delbridge-trained Flash Of Light ($2.60) defeated Aint Workin’ ($7.90) by a length with the Darren McDonald-trained Ultra Rumble ($5.40) a mere nose back in third.

Delbridge further enjoyed the win as his wife Lisa trained the runner-up Aint Workin’.

The kennelmates Flash Of Light (8) and Aint Workin’ (6) were first out of the boxes and remained head to head throughout the race as they fought for the lead. Aint Workin’ ran to the front going down the back straight, but Flash Of Light stayed close.

By the home turn she was ready to make her move, coming up on the outside of her kennelmate and overtaking to secure the win in the final few metres, while Ultra Rumble came up on the inside for third.

Flash Of Light, the daughter of Premier Fantasy and Trendy La Maze ran 34.48s over the 600m feature on Saturday night and has now won 22 of her 46 career starts.
