Trainer Anthony Azzopardi missed out on a $47,000 payday when race favourite Whiskey Riot ($3.50) finished fourth to La Grand Quality in the Group 2 Warragul Cup.
But around one and a half hours earlier – and just over 350kms away – he received what was to be a nice consolation prize when Slick Riot ($2.00F) snared the $10,000-to-the-winner Warrnambool Summer Sizzle (390m) in a sizzling 21.85sec. Azzopardi also quinellaed the event, with Aston Pilsner ($4.10) finishing second (three lengths astern) and collecting $2,835.
