Flying machine Simon Told Helen employed his trademark catch-me-if-you-can tactics to land a $100,000 first prize in tonight’s Group 1 Silver Chief final (525m) at The Meadows.
Trained at Little River by David Burnett, Simon Told Helen (Box 4) notched his fourth group race win with a display of dazzling early speed and mind-boggling mid-race acceleration.
His sizzling first and second split sectionals were 4.99sec and 17.40sec respectively.
And once again, he ran his rivals off their feet in registering his 10th win from 15 starts. His stakes spiralled to $261,105.
