Winning A 'Common Purpose' For Goulburn Trainers

Goulburn trainers stood tall on their home track on Monday, notching wins in three of the eight races contested on the day.

In a race meeting hosting plenty of depth and an array of visiting trainers, it was the home grown gallopers that stole the show by making the early races on the card their own.

One of the most popular wins on the day was that of the John Bateman-trained Common Purpose. The gelding was just about ready to pay rent on the runner-up's stall at Goulburn after notching four consecutive seconds on his home track in his first four starts.

However, he was able to hold off all challengers in race four, a maiden over 1500m, to breakthrough for a well-deserved win despite carrying 60kg.

The Danny Williams stable had earlier hinted that a big day might be in store for the locals by producing debutante Cartel to win the opening event.

The two-year-old started the popular elect with punters but looked a forlorn hope at the 600m mark, spotting the leaders almost eight lengths.

From there though the Street Boss colt turned heads with an explosive last furlong that secured the major prize and a winning start for local trainers.

Salesman then continued the winning theme for Goulburn-stabled runners by delivering in race two, a class two event over the 1000m. Resuming for the Sarah Murray-Leslie stable, the consistent three-year-old took the lead at the top of the straight and fought on strongly in the run home with apprentice Jean Van Overmeire in the saddle.

Goulburn secretary-manager, Robyn Fife, said the winning results for local trainers topped off what was a strong race meeting: “We were thrilled to host a strong contingent of visiting trainers and owners anyway, but to see our local horses do so well is a real credit to both our trainers and our track facilities,” Ms Fife said.

Goulburn Race Club’s next meeting will be on Friday 7th July. For race programming information visit Racing NSW's Race Diary or follow the club on twitter @goulburnraces
