It was great to see HIGHFALUTING win again last night and MENDOZA was only a neck away from making it a double on the night. This was HIGHFALUTING's second win on the course and it was particularly good to see the famous scarlet colours of David Baton's in the winner's enclosure again. David has been an extremely loyal owner and has been with us since the start so it was a thoroughly deserved win. HIGHFALUTING will now have break and come back for another all weather campaign in the New Year.
MENDOZA ran a very gallant race in defeat and it was good to see him back to form. He is a slight enigma as we can't put a finger on what made the difference last night but it was just good to see him put in a good performance again.
