  Mr Nevermind romps home in Sprint Trophy

PENANG:  Jul 29, 2018

After finding one to beat in the last two big sprints, MR NEVERMIND finally came into his own with a runaway win in the RM300,000 Penang Sprint Trophy here today.

In fact, MR NEVERMIND was first past the post in the Tunku Gold Cup (1200m) in April but lost the race in the stewards' room after the rider of the second-placed VOLCANIC GENERAL filed a protest for interference.

MR NEVERMIND then finished second to VOLCANIC GENERAL in the Perak Gold Vase in early June before winning a Cosmo B event here later in the month.

This year's Sprint Trophy was run in heavy going after heavy rain earlier in the day's programme.

But top marks to apprentice Wong Chin Chuen for a brilliant ride on MR NEVERMIND.

Trapped on the insides of horses on settling down, Wong attempted to make up ground at the 1000m but ran up to the heels of horses in front and has to ease back, to third last position at one stage.

Wong bidded for his time and opportunity and eventually found gaps between runners in front. At the top of the straight, MR NEVERMIND was among a line horses chasing the leader D'GREAT CONQUEROR who had a break and was several lengths clear.

But MR NEVERMIND quickly picked up up and raced past the leader with ease to win by 5 1/4 lengths. SHOWBOY flashed home to beat D'GREAT CONQUEROR for second.

MR NEVERMIND won twice in 10 starts in Singapore but since relocating to Malaysia, has picked up five wins and three placings in as many runs.

It was the first Sprint Trophy win for Evert van Breukelen, emulating the feat of his brother Marinus who saddled HUNII to victory in 2004.
