TARZINO Top Pick as Sportsbet’s Special on the Derby Offers Money Back up to 4th Place
January 01, 1970
It’s TARZINO’s time to shine in the Victoria Derby on Saturday. The Mick Price trained horse is a clear favourite for Flemington’s feature event. So will the colt conquer his 3 year old rivals in the 2500 metre set weight race?
TARZINO Top Pick
TARZINO deserves favouritism for the 1.5 million dollar race but the hotpot who’s currently around $2.40 with Sportsbet is likely to be the most prohibitive favourite in the staying classic since Helenus in 2002. Price isn’t fazed by the pressure nor was he bothered about drawing barrier 10 as he aims to end his Derby hoodoo. Jockey Craig Newitt is also aiming for his first triumph in the race in what will be his ninth attempt.
TARZINO who’ll be having just his sixth career start began his campaign with two wins before an excellent performance in the 1600 metres Guineas (where he produced the fastest final 200 metres despite limited room). TARZINO produced another strong performance over 2040 metres against the pattern at Moonee Valley last weekend. A huge final 800 metres has him peaking for his Grand Final on Saturday.
