GREAT VINTAGE WINS SATURDAY NIGHT 44G OPEN HANDICAP PACE
Using his usual gate speed, Great Vintage-from post position No. 5-had an early impediment in Barimah A (Brent Holland). Forced wide around that one, Great Vintage then continued to the lead, taking over from Robbie Burns N (Greg Merton) before a 27-second opening quarter-mile.
Once he fronted the fray, Great Vintage finished it off (56.4, 1:24.4, 1:52.4) Second went to a stubborn 17-10 fave Always at My Place (George Brennan), who was also compromised when an out-again Barimah A moved first-up and was his obligatory hard-to-steer self.
Barimah A eventually went back in again leaving Always at My Place to take up the chase. Great Vintage, with a length-and-a-half lead entering the lane, defeated Always at My Place by three-quarters of a length in 1:52.
