Classic success for Centenario
Former 2YO of the Year Centenario, who was bred, raised and sold by Benstud Standardbreds, returned to the winning list in emphatic fashion in the Holloway 3YO Classic at Ballarat on Friday night (May 24).
Starting from the No 2 gate, the colt pinged straight to the front and was never in any danger of defeat.
He rated a career-best 1:53.4 over 1710 metres to win under a hold, booming through the last two fractions in 28.2 and a stunning 26.4.
Centenario boasts the splendid record of 11 wins and three seconds from 16 starts for $331,520 in stakes.
The brilliant colt is out of Beninjurd, an unraced Art Major mare.
